An Important reminder from the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association and all Texas Coastal Property Insurers.
We are steadily approaching the height of hurricane season. One of the important measures policyholders and agents alike can take to be prepared is to make sure insurance coverage is in place well in advance of a storm that threatens the Texas coast – many insurance companies, including Texas Windstorm, stop writing coverage when there is an impending storm.
When does TWIA stop writing coverage?
As a reminder, no new or increased coverage applications will be accepted after a windstorm designated as a hurricane by the United States Weather Bureau is in the Gulf of Mexico or within the boundaries of 80 degrees west longitude and 20 degrees north latitude.
This rule is in effect until the TWIA General Manager determines that the storm no longer threatens property within the designated catastrophe area of the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association.

This is a great reminder for all Texas Costal Property owners. TWIA, and all other insurance companies decline new or additional protection when there is impending storm. Some stop when a storm is declared a Hurricane and others may stop sooner based on their personal preference. Call Ed Cantu Insurance now at (361) 991-1493 to secure your windstorm protection.
Because we Care,
P.S. When it comes to flood insurance, impending storm or not, there is a 30 day waiting for Flood Insurance Protection to go into force so if you don’t have protection, NOW is the time to secure a policy.
