Winter Storm Sparta – CSA

Last Updated:


Updated: 03/02/2015

Winter Storm Sparta delivered a long swath of snow and ice from the Rockies to the Southern Plains, Midwest and the East Coast as the calendar flipped from February to March.  The storm was named on February 27, 2015, and exited the Northeast coast by early March 2, 2015.  Sparta’s impacts began on February 27, 2015 when an upper-level impulse associated with a developing southward dip in the jet stream spread snow into some of the same parts of north Texas and southern Oklahoma, which were just blanketed by both Winter Storms Quantum and Remus.  The snow snarled travel in north Texas, including the Dallas-Forth Worth metro area.  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 Friday, February 27, 2015.  Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
