>> reporter: most policies cover structural and water damage but just in limited circumstances. for example, when a falling tree knocks a hole in a roof or a window and rain falls inside, yes, that's covered. but damage that results from rising water is not usually covered. only those who live in a designated flood zone and purchase insurance through the federal government's national flood insurance program are covered. and that coverage is up to $250,000 to rebuild or repair your home. $100,000 for damaged belongings. i should note that for other so-called acts of god, you guys would be interested like in this one in the bay area, earthquakes or sinkholes, you may be able to purchase a rider to a standard policy but, of course, it costs money. >> good to note that, jill. so how should we compare insurance coverage? is it actually recommended to buy these kinds of policies online? >> reporter: i think that absolutely you should do your research online. just know that prices vary by state and size of your
dwelling. and coverage is based on the cost to rebuild the house not the current market value. again, you're in an area where the current market value is probably much greater than the actual cost to rebuilt so you have to keep that in mind. it's absolutely fine to purchase that coverage online. but remember, you know, it's a little harder if you have to make a claim. once you secure it, take photos of the contents in your house. it can serve as a before picture in the event you need to make a claim. >> sounds good. jill schlesinger from new york city with a lot of useful information this morning. jill, thank you so much. 5:40 right now. a california man under arrest for posing as a doctor even diagnosing and treating children. >> plus severe weather in the midwest spawning a tornado and leaving one state under water.
