What does this mean?
The territory in which the South Carolina Wind and Hail Underwriting Association may provide wind and hail insurance coverage (i.e., coverage that protects property from losses due to hurricane, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, other catastrophic wind and hail) has been expanded to include some additional areas. This is an initial expansion and it is limited. It is intended to help improve availability by providing access to wind and hail insurance coverage to consumers who have had difficulty obtaining that coverage. It is also intended to encourage more standard insurers to write insurance coverage in the wind pool territory.
