Travel insurance carriers release position statements when current events affect coverage. Once an event is considered foreseeable, new policies purchased will not cover that event. This is most common when hurricanes and tropical storms are named, they are considered foreseeable. The following is a statement from CSA on Hurricane Igor.

Forecasters stated Igor is no threat to land, and they expect the storm to drop to a Category 3 storm by Friday in the open Atlantic.
