    Flood Preparedness.  Are you ready?

    One of the most frequent and costly natural hazards in Canada is overland flooding. If you are not aware of the term, it is when water flows overland and seeps into buildings through windows, doors and cracks. Floods have affected hundreds of thousands of Canadians and cause millions of dollars in damages each year. However, the bigger concern for many Canadian homeowners is that they are not insured for overland flooding, and can be left to deal with expensive repairs and replacing valuables.
