CatAdjuster.org Knowledge Base

CatAdjuster.org has been online since 1995 and as a result the membership has provided a lot of information on subjects ranging from the Appraisal Process to Z├╝rich claims. However, over the years the information has been posted in many different areas. What we hope to do with area is centralize access to this information and hopefully make it easier to locate.

Description
From the document;
 
 What will happen to a hurricane that runs through
this oil slick?
• Most hurricanes span an enormous area of the ocean (200-300 miles) — far wider than the current size of the spill.
• If the slick remains small in comparison to a typical hurricane’s general environment and size, the anticipated impact on the hurricane would be minimal.
• The oil is not expected to appreciably affect either the intensity or the track of a fully developed tropical storm or hurricane.
• The oil slick would have little effect on the storm surge or near-shore wave heights.
