Homeowners Affected by Disasters

The Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) defines a disaster as an earthquake, flood, hurricane, or other catastrophe caused by a person or event beyond the borrower's control. The following information may be helpful in the case of a natural disaster in your area.

Following are some resources to help you and your family get prepared as a storm nears:
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
    This site provides important information, like daily forecasts, severe storm monitoring, and more.
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
    FEMA works to improve your capability to prepare for, protect against, and recover from all catastrophes.
  • Floodsmart
    The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), administered by FEMA, works closely with nearly 90 private insurance companies to offer flood insurance to property owners and renters.
  • FEMA’s Readiness Site
    This site provides disaster preparedness resources, such as evacuation plans and supplies, a family emergency and communications plan, recommended disaster supplies list, and a child’s emergency contacts card.
