Does comprehensive car insurance cover flood damage?
Can my comprehensive insurance cover the cost of replacing the interior of a car destroyed by a flood? I was driving home a week ago when I unfortunately got caught in a flood. I'm okay—though shaken—but my car's interior is completely soaked, and it needs to be replaced. I have comprehensive car insurance, but I don't know if that covers flood damage.
