Model Development Puts RMS Ahead of the Storm
“RMS employed key personnel in the field prior to a large event happening. By doing that work before the wind blew, it gave us confidence in the industry that when loss estimates were issued, that there was a range of confidence that we could feel good about.”
Levels of RMS Event Response
RMS monitors events seven days a week, and as part of this monitoring, evaluates and responds to events based on predefined thresholds. At each of the five levels of response, we release additional types of information and products to clients. Activation of these levels depends on the magnitude or size of the event, the peril and region impacted, and the severity of the damage.
Hurricane Maria (2017)
Our years of studying the Puerto Rican market and building inventory enabled us to correctly capture the local risk profile and its vulnerability, both of which were missing from other market loss estimates of Hurricane Maria. RMS overcame failures in weather observation systems during high winds through the comprehensive HWind network. We were the only modeling firm to visit the island so near to the storm’s occurrence and this provided quick and powerful validation of our modeled damage.
Typhoons Faxai and Hagibis (2019)
The Japan typhoons of 2019 again demonstrated RMS’ commitment to post-event reconnaissance. Two missions were carried out in the days following Faxai: the first examined wind damage in Chiba Prefecture and the second visited wind and coastal flood damage in Kanagawa Prefecture. RMS reconnaissance teams were on the ground within a week of Hagibis’ landfall, investigating the magnitude of the flooding and the resulting damage.
