Please be advised that this earthquake, and potential aftershocks and tsunamis worldwide, fall within our guidelines, policy terms & conditions as weather events. Policies purchased prior to the event may cover it. As of Sep 16, 2015, 18:54:33 ET, this event is no longer considered unforeseen, so it is not covered. For additional information, please see: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us20003k7a#general_summary.
Trip cancellation and trip interruption benefits are not payable if a natural hazard (such as a brushfire, tropical storm, or hurricane) is named on or becomes foreseen before the effective date of the policy.
This guideline applies only to new policies that are effective on or after the event, and covering travel during such time. It does not apply to new policies that cover travel after the event has passed.
