    Hey there,

    I am learning basic stuff about insurances right now and I am unable to answer the following question:

    what characteristics of insurable risk is there for flood risk for cars but not for homes?

    - loss is accidential
    - definite and measurable
    - no catastrophe potential

    My guess would be that the catastrophe potential is smaller for cars. What would you say?

    Thanks:)

    This is really helping and informative for me..
    Such insurance is necessary for your own safety... And one should avail this option if they get one...!!!

    Pick up a phone. Talk to an insurance agent.

    Talking to guy thinking about buying a home in FLA yesterday.

    He told me that (just!)FLOOD INSRANCE in FLA on a $50,000 house would like $1,800 a year.

    That amount did not include the normal homeowners policy that was JUST flood ins.


    Holy smokes!!!

    Well a lot of you folks may not believe that Global Weirding is really happening but your insurance companies obviously disagree.
