Complete View of Risk
Take advantage of a complete view of hazard, vulnerability, and loss to enable accurate risk management of severe weather.
Unified Event Set
One event set covers both the contiguous U.S. and Canada, ensuring that the hazard correlation between these two countries is preserved.
Comprehensive Vulnerability Modeling
The models contain an extensive suite of peril-specific vulnerability curves and regions: 800 unique vulnerability curves across 11 vulnerability regions.
Lightning damage to exterior elements as well as to contents is included in the models for complete coverage of all Severe Convective Storm sub-perils.
ELT to YLT
Use the RMS Simulation Platform to convert Event Loss Tables into Year Loss Tables.
In-depth Model Hazard, Vulnerability and Loss Validation
The North America Severe Convective Storm models were validated with several billion dollars of location-level property claims as well as hundreds of millions of dollars of auto losses, in addition to thorough validation against the most respected climate data sets.
Trusted by the Industry
Close to 100 insurers and reinsurers trust the RMS U.S. and Canada Severe Convective Storm models for managing their severe weather risk.
May Tornadoes Leave U.S. in a Whirlwind
Late May 2019 was a startlingly active period for severe convective storms (SCS) in the U.S.
Late May 2019 was a startlingly active period for severe convective storms (SCS) in the U.S., even after considering that May is typically one of the most active months of the year. Until about halfway through the month, the number of tornadoes being reported was around average, but after a major outbreak starting in mid-May this number shot up, bringing the year-to-date total to 1,017 tornado reports. This count is only surpassed by the extremely active years…
