When Tennessee weather threatens your coverage...
Standard homeowners insurance coverage offers protection for most weather threats in the Volunteer state. Damage from lightning, wind, hail, fire, and theft are all covered by standard Tennessee home insurance policies.
Flooding and earthquakes, however, are not covered by standard home insurance. It matters because five major rivers cross the state: the Mississippi, Tennessee, Cumberland, Clinch and Duck. As for earthquakes, since 1965, there have 13 in the state with a magnitude of 3.5 or greater.
For flood coverage, homeowners will need to purchase a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program. Learn more about the National Flood Insurance Program.
