Normally insurance companies will not write new policies or reinstate policies when severe weather is imminent because of the high probability of a loss. However, that is usually reserved for counties that are expected to be hit by the severe weather, which shouldn't impact you based on your location. Personally I would recommend shopping around
for a new insurance company that is willing to offer coverage to you. Unless your area is likely to be hit by damaging weather, you should be able to get insured.
