Hurricane Florence storm surge potential

 In Event News
Hurricane Florence – September 11 update

The NHC has begun issuing potential storm surge flooding maps for Hurricane Florence. Significant flooding is expected to accompany Florence after landfall, due to the combination of storm surge and rainfall.

As the storm moves closer to landfall, insurers and brokers are using smart alerts and probabilistic wind speed footprints to help plan their response – for risk mitigation, underwriting and claims management.

And as Hurricane Hazel was the last category 4 hurricane to make landfall in North Carolina, in 1954, the Quick Link for that event footprint has been sent to EigenPrism subscribers to enable historical comparisons.

Assessing the impact

Hurricane alert notifications that allow custom thresholds will result in targeted information sent when you need it, helping reduce the noise and producing actionable analytics.

EigenPrism allows users to select the perils most applicable to their exposure sets, and then set customized thresholds for each peril and exposure set Alert. Thresholds can be set using a variety of metrics, including number of assets, impacted values, ground up loss, and damage factors. The result is smart Alerts that assess the impact for you, and let you know when it is time to act.

  • EigenAlerts provide automated notifications with key metrics to estimate impact
  • Customized and mobile enabled
  • Updated as forecasts and advisories change

And automated forecast Impact Report templates make pre-event analysis available in minutes.
