ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE FORECAST FOR 2016
Forecast Parameter and 1981-2010
Issue Date 1 June 2016 - Updated 7/1

  • Information obtained through July 2016 indicates that the 2016 Atlantic hurricane
    season will have activity near the median 1981-2010 season. There remains considerable
    uncertainty with this forecast which we outline in the following paragraphs.
    We estimate that 2016 will have an additional 5 hurricanes (median is 6.5), 11
    named storms (median is 12.0), 50 named storm days (median is 60.1), 20 hurricane days
    (median is 21.3), 2 major (Category 3-4-5) hurricane (median is 2.0) and 4 major
    hurricane days (median is 3.9). The probability of U.S. major hurricane landfall is
    estimated to be about 95 percent of the long-period average. We expect Atlantic basin
    Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) and Net Tropical Cyclone (NTC) activity in 2016
    to be approximately 90 percent of their long-term averages for the remainder of the
    season.

New Guidelines for NFIP Adjusters

A note about the use of the term “Authorized NFIP Adjuster” rather than “Certified NFIP Adjuster”: It is FEMA’s position that certification requires a more formal course of study and the successful passing of a series of examinations before certification is awarded, such is the case with Certified Public Accounts. Also, the FCN will now be referred to as the Flood Control Number.

"The unpredictable nature of catastrophe claims adjusting makes staffing a challenging prospect. Labor requirements fluctuate with windstorm, flood and seismic activity, creating the necessity for an “at-will” or “as needed” adjuster work force, rather than one based on a regular, full-time schedule. Extensive travel and lengthy stays away from home are often required.

Even with that caveat, ICA is continuously searching for quality outside property adjusters and commercial adjusters. We pride ourselves on our Quality Service to our customers and their policy holders. Qualifications should include specific insurance claims adjusting experience in your field of preference and adjuster licensing in your state of residence (if required). Individuals who have a background in a closely related field, such as automobile body repair or home construction, may also be considered for claims adjusting positions. Other requirements for claims adjusting positions include outstanding organizational skills and exceptional verbal and written communication skills. Computer literacy and excellent customer service skills are necessary."
