Posted: 09/30/2015

Hurricane Joaquin became the 2015 Atlantic season’s third hurricane Wednesday morning.  Hurricane watches and warnings have been issued for the Bahamas as the storm continues to intensify.  Early Wednesday, the storm was centered about 240 miles east-northeast of the central Bahamas and is moving west-southwest near 6 mph.  According to the National Hurricane Center, Joaquin could track up the East Coast in the next few days.  Any potential landfall on the U.S. East Coast is difficult to forecast at this time, so those living or traveling along the East Coast of the U.S. should pay close attention to the forecast now through this weekend.  Customers are strongly encouraged to read their Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy for details regarding their available coverage.  For plans that do offer coverage for adverse weather and natural disasters, please note that there is no coverage for this specific storm under any plans purchased on or after September 30, 2015.  Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
