Does home insurance cover volcano damage?

My daughter is considering moving to an area with volcanic activity. Will she be protected from volcano damage?

In order for volcano damage to be covered by homeowners insurance, eruptions would have to be listed as a “named peril” on the policy. Or alternatively, there would have to be an “open peril” policy without any exclusion for volcano eruptions.
Generally speaking, homeowners insurance rarely addresses volcano eruptions overtly. But while eruptions may not be included in a policy, some related events like fire and fallen objects may be explicitly covered. This provides some indirect protetction from volcanoes.
