When Does Yokahu Launch?
Yokahu and its first policies will be available on an invite-only basis in the next few weeks. We are able to launch in The Bahamas, St Lucia, Jamaica and US Virgin Islands. We will only be able to release 300 policies in 2021 as we await further insurer support and achieve regulatory sign off in more countries.

Can You Remind Me How Your Hurricane Emergency Expenses Work?
Of course, here it is in a nutshell (and you might want to check out our FAQs too)…
When a hurricane happens we monitor live weather data at your location and send you money straight away, in as little as 24 hours! The stronger the storm at your home, the more we send you. You can use this money to rebuild your life and get your family back on track.
Yokahu will pay you based upon two simple things:
- The location you give us when you sign up (your home) must experience hurricane strength winds (74mph+).
- We then pay you based upon the strength of the storm. We categorise hurricanes using 5 Categories:
- Very Intense
- Very High
Intense is the lowest category and Extreme is the highest. You will receive payment shown in your policy based upon the classification category of the storm when it affected your insured location. The stronger the storm, the more money we send you.
If you are due a payment, you will receive your money in as little as 24 hours.
