“You never think it will happen to you, until it does.”

Jerry and Kim Elia aren’t the only homeowners to utter these words after unexpected and life-changing floods ruined their home, causing thousands of dollars in damages. Many Americans adopt a false sense of security when it comes to flooding because they don’t live near a major body of water. They are wrong.

The Elia family lived more than 120 miles inland from the Atlantic coast. That didn’t protect them when a slow moving system stalled out over Columbia, South Carolina in 2015, causing historic flooding in the area.

Flooding is the most common natural disaster, impacting hundreds of thousands of American homeowners each year. There are lessons to be learned from those who have experienced the physical, mental, emotional and financial toll of these catastrophic events so that you don’t find yourself saying, “I never thought this would happen to me.”
