This will cause a limited amount of hurricanes and major hurricanes to develop during the season and decrease the likelihood of a hurricane landfall.

6 Replies and 4220 Views Question about wildfire claim  4220  6 Started by  QuitMyDayJob Hi everyone, I am relatively new to the field--starting my 'second career'--and I am assisting with my first wildfire claim. The homeowners live about 100 feet from a substantial burn area (forest and houses) and are claiming window damage. I have been assigned as the researcher to gather information as to whether or not such damage can result to windows from radiant heat of a wildfire. They are claiming blown seals, warping, and discoloration of the vinyl. Any suggestions on research...

8 Replies and 4160 Views Sandy - NHC debating removing name for deductible purposes  4160  8 Started by  Torrential Here's a video conversation that occurred on the Weather Channel recently, between Brian Norcross and Jim Cantore. They raise some interesting questions, that could have far reaching legal implications for deductibles related to damage from hurricane Sandy. Some policies specify a 'named storm' deductible. However, if the storm becomes subtropical before landfall, it technically loses its hurricane name, or perhaps should.  It will make a big difference to many folks.  If anyone has...

'Now this is particularly good news for Louisiana with regard to the 2011 hurricane season,' said Keim. 'We get more hurricane in La Niñas and fewer when conditions are neutral or in an El Niño, which is the opposite of a La Niña.'

29 Replies and 15474 Views FLOODS IN AUSTRALIA  15474  29 Started by  Leland
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Australia is having flooding over an area as big as Texas. Twenty two towns are flooded. It is interesting how their issues are similar but different from the U.S. I wonder if there's any work available for Americans, since this sounds like a very large catastrophe. Here in the US we have arguments over storm surge, there they argue about whether the rain fell into a river before hitting the house. Australian policies do not have a standardized definition of flood, and some include it with the...
