Update: After careful monitoring of storm activity in the Gulf, the decision was made on September 18, 2018, to deactivate TWIA’s CAT Plan based on National Weather Service reports.
Tuesday, September 11, TWIA activated our CAT Plan in response to a disturbance in the Gulf which is expected to move toward the Texas coast later this week. Activating our CAT Plan allows us to start readying the resources we will need to respond to our policyholders should a storm make landfall.
TWIA is currently still writing coverage. However, please be mindful that we cannot accept new or increased coverage applications on the day (beginning at 12:01 A.M.) or 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.
If this happens, we will post an announcement here.
If you have any questions about your TWIA policy coverages, please don’t delay contacting your insurance agent.
