Lessons from Baton Rouge: How to storm-proof your home insurance


The flooding in Baton Rouge, La. is the worst natural disaster to hit the U.S. since Hurricane Sandy battered the east coast in 2012, according to the Red Cross, with thousands of people seeking refuge from their flooding. Over 40,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed and 4,000 people sought out shelter. The Federal Emergency Management Agency registered 95,576 claims for assistance, and has either approved or dispersed $16.8 million in assistance, a spokesman told The Wall Street Journal.

For those in the path of the most recent flooding, it will be too late if they didn’t already have insurance.
