What is comprehensive car insurance?

My dad says I should get comprehensive insurance for the used car I'm buying. What does it cover?

Comprehensive insurance covers damage to your car caused by incidents other than collisions. For example, it can kick in if your car is stolen or if a really bad storm or other act of nature damages your vehicle. Most of the time, this coverage is used for damage sustained while you’re not driving your vehicle.
