While about 750 Charleston-area homeowners face the loss of their hurricane coverage from Nationwide, 144 mobile-home owners will see their insurance policies dropped entirely by the company.

The 144 mobile-home policies that will not be renewed are the among the last that Nationwide has in the Charleston area. Insurance policy changes typically happen when annual policies come due for renewal.

Insurance companies are allowed to nonrenew policies, but must give notice in writing 60 days in advance, or 90 days in advance if the nonrenewal takes effect during hurricane season, June 1 to Oct. 31.
