Travel insurance providers release position statements when current events affect coverage. Once an event is considered foreseeable, new policies purchased will not cover that event. The most common example of an event becoming foreseeable is when a hurricane or tropical storm is named. After the storm is named, it is too late to purchase a new policy that will be covered for cancellation reasons.
Hurricane Carlotta formed early Friday, June 15th, off the western coast of Mexico in the Pacific Ocean. The storm is expected to strengthen rapidly, possibly becoming a Category 2 before the eye reaches the coast. A hurricane warning is in effect for parts of the Pacific coast of Mexico, from Salina Cruz to Acapulco. According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, the Oaxaca coast is likely to receive between 12-15 inches of rain.
