Subject: Suspension of Binding Authority Hurricane (Tropical Storm) Don
The National Weather Service has advised that Tropical Storm Don has reached the coordinates of 80 deg. w. Long and 20 deg. n.Lat; therefore, no Personal or Commercial Lines coverage can be bound or increased in the following areas:
- Tier 1 and Tier 2 Counties
The remaining areas of Texas may be restricted or modified as the storm progresses.
While we will endeavor to disseminate information regarding binding restrictions and reinstatements as storms occur, you are responsible for following our storm guidelines without reliance on any such notices. Our (Republic) guidelines are available on the Agency Business center (ABC). Any questions regarding binding authority should be discussed with a company (Republic) representative.
As you know, flood damage is not a covered peril; therefore, your customers in flood-prone areas may want to purchase flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program.
Please contact your marketing representative or underwriter if you have questions.
