What is the south Carolina wind pool?

<p style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt"> <font face="Calibri">The South Carolina legislature passed a bill in the early 70's that led to the organization of the South Carolina Wind and Hail Underwriting Association, or SCWHUA. The SCWHUA is actually an association of Insurance companies that provide property coverage for<span>&nbsp; </span>the peril of wind and hail to homeowners in high risk coastal areas that find it difficult, even impossible, to buy this coverage through standard insurance markets.</font></p> <p style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt"> <font face="Calibri">The Association will write business<span>&nbsp; </span>up to $1.3 million for personal risks and $2.5 million on commercial risks. Deductibles normally range from 2% to 3% of policy limits depending on proximity to the coast. </font></p> <p style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt"> <font face="Calibri">For more information about the SCWHUA, you can visit their website at <a href="http://www.scwind.com/">www.scwind.com</a>.
