The “Valentine’s Day Blizzard”, officially named Winter Storm Neptune, is set to bring heavy snow to the North East during Valentine’s Day weekend, with the heaviest snow expected on February 14th. This is the most recent Winter Storm to affect the area, after almost three weeks of freezing temperatures and record snowfall.

A main concern of local authorities is the threat of collapsing roofs under pounds of snow and ice. All Tin Leg plans include coverage for travelers whose homes become uninhabitable due to a natural disaster, including a blizzard. Under the Trip Cancellation and Interruption benefit, travelers may be eligible to be reimbursed for the unused expenses of their trip, as well as last-minute return airfare.
