Business Report: Travel insurance and the lava

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - When you book an airline ticket, they offer travel insurance. Maybe you've bought it from time to time. I wondered whether that would cover someone who backed out of a Hawaii vacation because of lava. The answer is, probably not. Here's what it WOULD cover.

1.    If mandatory evacuations cover your destination. 
2.   If your accommodations are uninhabitable.
3.   IF flights are significantly delayed or canceled outright.
4.   IF your own home is at risk.
