** THE ANSWER WHY THE WINTER STORMS NOW HAVE NAMES! **
I was talking to the wife last night(she works in the insurance industry"account manager"10 yrs)about named winter storms. I was trying to make a point that it must be more fear mongering from our lovely MSM! She quickly put me in my place and shocked me. She told me that most of the country is not covered by their insurance from "ANY NAMED STORM"! I am thinking that everyone out here on GLP should check your Homeowner's Insurance & Renter's Insurance. I am willing to bet that most that are not on the coast lines have even heard of "Named Storm Coverage". Well it turns out that if your insurance does not have a named storm clause in it, well then they will cover nothing!

I find i really interesting that they started nameing storms this year. Were they just waiting until the storms were going to be violent enough to make many homeless. I think this ties into Agenda 21. They want to make many homeless in order to have reasons for FEMA to round everyone up.

I did find it hard to find anything about named storm coverage besides coastal areas. But she assures me that this is for all insurance companies in the U.S.A. We Live in Colorado and these storms dont even hit here. But the coverage is still the same.
I also found it VERY CREEPY when I read the names they chose!

Here is a few linkies so it no Stinky

Wow.

I was wondering about this when I heard of "Brutus".

I never heard of naming winter storms before this either.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit about the insurance angle though.

I'm gonna look at my policy today.

I live in CO also.

Re: ** THE ANSWER WHY THE WINTER STORMS NOW HAVE NAMES! **
I wonder the legalities that might arise as the rules seem arbitrary and non standard...

From your Wikipedia link:

The 2012–13 US winter storm season is the first winter storm season defined by The Weather Channel, to name noteworthy winter storms. The season is notable for controversy among the meteorological organizations, such as the National Weather Service and Accuweather, that refused to recognize the naming scheme, as the criteria for the storm is relatively arbitrary based on its "noteworthiness". According to NBC News, the reason for the naming of winter storms is to raise awareness and to make it easier to track the storm's progress. This was not done without precedent as other weather systems including the strongest winter European windstorms have been named since the 1950s. Giving storms names makes them more memorable and makes it easier to communicate via social media.[1]

Re: ** THE ANSWER WHY THE WINTER STORMS NOW HAVE NAMES! **
hurricanes have always been named - coverage doesn't go away because it's named. That said, you must also carry FLOOD ... ie. 'rising water' insurance if live near coast and prone to damage.

Is your story is accurate, please provide a link stating that this from at least one insurance company.

posting links for names of storms does not denote non fail.

Re: ** THE ANSWER WHY THE WINTER STORMS NOW HAVE NAMES! **
From the offshorerisk link in the OP, kinda makes sense when you look at it this way.



The Named Storm, Named Windstorm or Catastrophe deductible clause gives the property or boat owner plenty of incentive to protect property and with the early warning systems in place such as television, radio, newspaper, internet, weather radio bands, radio nets and other sources that should be diligently and regularly monitored before, during and after the applicable season; there should be plenty of time to implement your "Hurricane Plan" and protect your property, insured or not

It's the "you were warned to protect your property or move it out of the area" clause. tounge

Re: ** THE ANSWER WHY THE WINTER STORMS NOW HAVE NAMES! **
Yes, some insurance companies do have "named storm" protection.

However, just because a private company, like the Weather Channel" produced some silly naming winter storms crap for ratings, doesnt mean those storms are "officially named storms" recognized by the National Hurricane Center or NOAA/NWS. Nor would those storms fall under the Insurance companies "Name Storm Policies" or lack of that protection.

So insurance company customers have nothing to worry about.

This could be a blessing in disguise. Most people will not abandon their coastal property simply based on a rumor that there's a pending catastrophic event looming on their horizon sometime in the very near future. Forcing them out could very well save lives.

Why can't you just simply and objectively state your point -- I.E.: "Storms derive their official names from the NHC or NWS" without the petty name-calling -- I.E.: "I think your wife should look for a new career", etc.

This is a prime example of what's wrong with this society.

OP Quotes .... "I did find it hard to find anything about named storm coverage besides coastal areas"


Brutus was an inland storm, hitting the upper midwest and north western United States, it wasn't THAT bad, and the fact that they gave it a name was really really weird , like it was some monster storm which it was not really at all. I think it is a fear mongering tactic, and it kinda worked on me. I was like " whoa, they have never named a winter storm before that has hit my area" And i literally felt some fear like it was something terrible heading this way, which it wasn't at all. We got a foot of snow out of it and it dropped the temps down to the single digits for a couple of nights and 20s in the day , not that bad. So I don't like this nameing winter storms thing...something about it just doesn't seem ok...thanks for posting this idea, but I think it is more then Insurance blah blah blah...
