Manage Your Flood Risk

Although often dismissed as a secondary peril by the insurance industry, flood risk in the U.S. continues to be a significant insured loss threat. Flood Risk Score data can help to mitigate structure losses and business interruption losses by providing risk scores and rating information that can be used in your underwriting business rules to reduce and mitigate flood loss both inside and outside of FEMA Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs).

Don’t Get Under Water

Flood Risk Score provides current FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) data and goes a step further by evaluating elevation of property, distance to 500-Year and 100-Year floodplains along with 100-Year water surface elevations to provide a more comprehensive hydrologic risk assessment of a property location. 

Using a more complete and current flood risk data solution that provides visualization of FEMA flood maps and Flood Risk Ratings you can easily assess risk at a granular level to see where the flood risk lies on the property.  For both residential and commercial properties this can prove valuable in identifying the risk when multiple structures are present.

NEW: Canada Flood Risk Score

Flood risk has become increasingly top of mind in light of recent flood events in Canada, and in response, carriers who are beginning to provide flood insurance policy products to their customers are looking for guidance on how to rate the risk. It can be costly and time consuming to develop a flood model in house. With decades of experience in flood, CoreLogic has taken the mantle of modeling flood risk in Canada.
