State Farm
car insurance policy will cover hurricane damage, as long as you have comprehensive insurance.
Comprehensive insurance
covers damage to vehicles from perils other than collision. In addition to hurricane damage, vandalism, theft, and hail are also covered perils.
If you don’t currently have comprehensive insurance, you may not have the ability to add it to your policy. When hurricanes or other natural disasters are expected to occur, many
car insurance companies
put a hold on issuing new policies or changing coverages. They do this to reduce the number of claims they may have to pay out after the event.
You’ll need to check with State Farm to confirm whether you can add comprehensive insurance to your policy. If you can’t add comprehensive insurance or aren’t already covered, you will have to pay for any damage out of pocket.
In the future, you may want to add comprehensive coverage to your car insurance. That’s when
