The AP reported that other companies are cutting back or dropping windstorm coverage along the coast.

State Farm said it will continue coverage for homes located more than one mile inland, but those homeowners will need to get a building code certificate from the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association, according to the AP report. The company will not sell new policies for homes that are between the 2,500-foot mark and one mile inland, but said it will renew policies for homes in these areas.

Other companies that have cut back or dropped windstorm coverage altogether include American National Property and Casualty, Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Co., Horace Mann Insurance, Beacon Insurance and Middle States Insurance Co., according to the AP.
