Crawford Catastrophe Services® has updated clients on a daily basis after Hurricane Irma passed through the Caribbean, Florida and the south eastern United States.
(Re)insurers, corporates and policyholders have been advised to monitor Crawford’s Catastrophe Response web site for further information, with teams now being initially deployed from the group’s Atlanta Induction Centre which will transition to Jacksonville very shortly.
Although less damaging than originally feared, Irma still generated substantial losses in Florida, with the Keys worst affected of all, Jacksonville enduring its worst flooding since 1864, storm surges affecting Charleston, SC and parts of Georgia left without power following damaging storm force winds,
Crawford U.S. Property & Casualty CEO, Ken Tolson, said “Last month we set up an induction centre in Austin, TX after Harvey. We’ve done the same in Atlanta for Irma with our central induction centres forming the backbone of the Crawford Catastrophe response, from which we deploy hundreds of experts around the region.
“In addition, Crawford has been able to call upon the WeGoLook® network of Lookers® which are being used to gauge the size and scope of loss in many areas. Finally, drones have been utilised on a wide basis, to help us survey damage in many of the more hard to reach areas.
