Hurricane & Wind Insurance Coverage
Available coverage depends on the type of wind insurance you get. The different types of wind insurance include: windstorm insurance, wind and hail insurance, hurricane insurance, and named storm insurance.
Regardless of which policy you get, most of these policies offer the same basic coverage—protection against property damage caused by strong winds, and in some cases, hail. Hurricane and named storm policies cover damage caused by hurricanes and tropical storms, while windstorm and wind and hail insurance may be more comprehensive, covering everything from thunderstorms and hail storms to hurricanes.
