A hurricane is a very powerful rotating tropical storm that produces fierce wind and torrential rain. Hurricanes develop over large bodies of warm water - including parts of the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea - and move generally northward. Although the southern and eastern coastal regions of the U.S. are vulnerable to the most devastating effects of hurricanes, inland regions can be impacted by the storm's remnant winds, rains, or even following tornadoes. Fortunately, Travelers has the size, strength and experience to help you recover after any type of storm.
