Observational Data-Driven Insights into Wind Hazard
Tropical cyclones can re-shape the market. Having an effective event response strategy is key to staying ahead of the storm. You need to gain quality insights, understand potential impacts on your business, and make important decisions to ensure solvency, all in a time-sensitive manner.
HWind Real-Time Analysis, consisting of instantaneous wind field snapshots and post-landfall wind hazard footprints, gives you the ability to assess and respond to evolving storm conditions as the event unfolds.
Snapshots allow you to understand dynamic storm characteristics and anticipate where claims and business interruption are likely to occur, while footprints help inform accurate positioning of response and recovery assets, as well as post-event performance and loss assessment.
HWind Snapshots provide a representation of current wind field conditions at various points throughout a storm's life cycle. They are produced regularly every three to six hours from the start of aircraft reconnaissance to event dissipation. A network of over thirty land, sea, and airborne observational data sources is used to inform each snapshot, detailing the wind hazard profile, strength and location of the strongest winds, and storm location.
HWind Footprints: Post-Event Wind Field Reconstructions
HWind post-event wind field reconstructions are wind hazard footprints produced one to three days after tropical cyclone landfall. They provide the best possible representation of the event's wind field and track based on expert review of all event observational data used for the snapshots, and any additional post-event Information.
