Wind Insurance Wind insurance is designed for those who live in coastal areas.  Wind insurance may cover damages from hurricane-force winds, tornados, hail, and other weather events that are accompanied by wind gusts that exceed 35 miles per hour. Flood Insurance Flood damage is excluded under all homeowner’s policies. We can obtain coverage for you through the National Flood Insurance Program Disaster Preparation Tips
