The Start of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season

Source: Department of Atmospheric Science Colorado State University
"We anticipate that the 2019 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have slightly below normal activity. The current weak El Niño event appears likely to persist and perhaps even strengthen this summer/fall. Sea surface temperatures averaged across the tropical Atlantic are slightly below normal, and the far North Atlantic is anomalously cool. Our Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillation index is below its long-term average. We anticipate a slightly below-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the continental United States coastline and in the Caribbean. As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them. They should prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted."

Drone flights were coordinated with the FAA and Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership (MAAP) at Virginia Tech as part of the Integration Pilot Program for large-scale damage assessment in Virginia and South Carolina.

Insurers ache for qualified inspectors after U.S. hurricanes

(Reuters) - Insurers are scrambling to find inspectors in Texas and Florida after fierce hurricanes battered the states one after the other, causing tens of billions of dollars' worth of property damage in less than two weeks.


Although insurers maintain some number of inspectors, known as claims adjusters, across the U.S. year-round, they must redeploy staff from other areas or hire contract workers to fill gaps when catastrophes like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma strike. The speed with which they can do so is critical to residents and business owners awaiting insurance payments.

Companies Citizens had hired to provide independent claims adjusters for post-storm damage assessments supplied far fewer adjusters than Citizens requested.

Proposed Senate bill calling for hailstorm litigation reform finds favor in insurance industry

AUSTIN – Texas lawmakers have filed Senate Bill 10 in an effort to pass legislation that would decrease, or halt altogether, hailstorm litigation abuse.

....

Hail litigation has spiraled out of control in Texas, mainly because of a small group of bad actors who abuse the system,” said Hancock in a statement published Feb. 13. “Senate Bill 10 will address this problem, improve transparency and protect Texas consumers from sky-high premiums without infringing on their right to make an insurance claim or sue their insurance company when it's not holding up its end of a deal.”

All insurers should resist dubious claims

Shingles are something you never want to have, unless they're on the top of your house or on the outside of your law office. 

Joe Cantu is fortunate not to have shingles, at least not on his roof, but he does have cement tiles up there, and some of them apparently got damaged when the March 29, 2012 hailstorm hit his Hidalgo County home. 

Though conceding that only 8-14 tiles were damaged, Cantu nevertheless wanted his insurer, State Farm Lloyds, to replace all the tiles on his roof, ostensibly to make sure they would match. 

When State Farm told Cantu “can't do,” Cantu said “can too” and filed suit. 

Last month, a federal jury agreed with State Farm. It wasn't a difficult decision in the end, because the cost of replacing the damaged tiles was less than Cantu's deductible.

Exclusive: Erie Insurance tests Google Glass to help process claims

"The next time you get a visit from an insurance adjuster, he or she might be wearing a futuristic headset to help process your claim. Pittsburgh policyholders were part of a pilot program from Erie Insurance (NASDAQ:ERIE) to test the use of off-the-shelf Google Glass as a way to make insurance adjusters’ working lives easier and more efficient. The idea, developed by three Erie Insurance employees, was vetted by the board of directors following a company wide contest. This is the first time Erie’s program has been disclosed beyond the company."

Don’t Mess With Texas Adjusters In Hail Damage Claims

Don’t Mess With Texas Adjusters In Hail Damage Claims

Texas hail claim policyholder lawyers, like many plaintiffs’ lawyers, clearly prefer to be in state court rather than federal court. To accomplish this and prevent the defendant insurer from properly removing the lawsuit to federal court, Texas policyholder attorneys simply sue the adjuster (who, like the policyholder, is almost always a Texas resident). This common act of gamesmanship ostensibly destroys the complete diversity of citizenship required for federal court diversity jurisdiction, allowing the policyholder to litigate its hail damage claim in state court.

Want to move to New Zealand and work as a Loss Adjuster?

Want to move to New Zealand and work as a Loss Adjuster?

The Earthquake Commission (EQC) will pay 24 of its staff $65,000 a year to fill new positions requiring just over one week's work per month.

The public insurer is looking for candidates from within its workforce for "base contractor" positions, as loss adjusters and estimators, around the country.

The jobs pay $65,000 plus GST a year for 54 hours work a month, which is about $100 an hour, with each contractor being paid even if there is no work.

That is about double the going hourly rate for a loss adjuster working full time on residential buildings, a leading recruitment firm says.
