According to the National Weather Service, the storm is predicted to produce "heavy snow from central Kansas through the Ohio Valley and Northeast; heavy ice accumulation from Arkansas into the Ohio River Valley and Mid-Atlantic; and heavy rainfall with possible flooding for parts of the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys". This extreme weather will affect some regions that already experienced travel problems due to Winter Storm Maximus in the last several days.

In fact, the combination of these winter storms is causing school closings across the country. With more snow in the forecast, schools may be forced to extend their school year.

It's important to ask, "Will these school year extensions ruin my family's upcoming vacation?"

Most people are aware that travel insurance provides coverage for a variety of unforeseen reasons including: illness; medical and non-medical emergencies; travel delays and cancellations. However, most travelers are unaware that travel insurance can also provide coverage if their trip needs to be delayed or cancelled due to a school year extension.

MH Ross offers coverage for this very reason in all of their travel insurance plans. By purchasing travel insurance, travelers can better prepare themselves for the unexpected parts of travel.
