Flood insurance not available in Willmar

Email

WILLMAR -- Flood insurance is not available to property owners in the city of Willmar under the National Flood Insurance Program.

However, many insurance policies do cover water damage from sewer or drain backup.

"There are many misconceptions ab-out insurance coverage and flooding,'' says Bob Johnson, president of the Insurance Federation of Minnesota. "The biggest misconception is that you can't get flood insurance unless you live in a floodplain, but that's not true."
