Homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover losses due to flooding. There is a 30-day waiting period. Please note that new flood insurance policies will not be written once a storm is approaching.
National Flood Insurance Program
The City of Atlantis participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which makes flood insurance available to everyone in the City. For most, a home and its contents are their greatest investment. If your property is even subject to the possibility of flood damage, from hurricanes or otherwise, you should be protected with an NFIP Flood Policy. Contact your insurance agent and have him or her discuss the types of coverage available to you.
