With spring just around the corner, and floods threatening southern Utah, Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert has declared March as Flood Safety Awareness Month (download the declaration here). This is a chance to dispel some of the myths about flooding and how Utahns believe they are protected. Check out the following disclaimer video.

  • FACT: Floods can happen anywhere in Utah.
  • FACT: Homeowners insurance typically doesn’t cover flooding from outside the home.
  • FACT: About 97 percent of Utahns don’t have flood insurance.
  • FACT: Flood insurance is affordable.
  • FACT: Our Division of Emergency Management has created a new website to help Utahns get a flood insurance quote. FloodFacts.Utah.gov
