Amite City may be small, but its 4,000 and some residents know how to have fun. Between the Oyster Festival in March and October’s Tangipahoa Parish Fair, Amite City residents can enjoy the good times and great food the Pelican State is Famous for.

However, this small town also lies in the path of many of the storms that hit its big city neighbors, and that makes homeowners insurance in Amite City, LA absolutely essential. Unfortunately, it can also make coverage expensive.

How much is home insurance in Amite City 

Louisiana is no stranger to high home insurance costs. With an average annual premium of $2,259, it has some of the most expensive coverage in the nation.

Unique risks in Amite City

To say Amite City faces a hurricane risk is an understatement. The most recent example is Hurricane Ida in 2021, when authorities declared a state of emergency and a curfew to protect the town’s residents. But Ida was just the latest in a long list of hurricanes and tropical storms that have passed through Amite City stretching back to the 1930s.

Amite City also averages 65 inches of rain every year, more than the national average, and that puts parts of the town at risk for flooding. While the Amite City flood map shows most of the town in Flood Zone X, there are some areas designated as Flood Zone A.

Please note: Home insurance doesn’t cover water damage caused by floods. You may want to investigate flood coverage to better protect your property.
