Losses from severe weather continue to increase each year. Use our data to understand and track severe storms.
Losses From Severe Weather Are Increasing.
According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, losses from severe weather are increasing. It is now common for annual losses to exceed $1 billion. In the past 5 years alone losses have exceeded $10 billion. Virtually all catastrophic losses (>$25 million) are weather-related.
Here are some examples of insurance-related projects we have undertaken.
After severe weather events, map layers showing radar, satellite, and hail swaths can be very useful to understand the event and verify claims.
Weatherlogics maintains an extensive database of hail, wind, tornado, and rainfall data for all of Canada. These custom datasets provide ground-measurements of actual events.
Our meteorologists provide some clients with real-time storm tracking and alerting. This allows you to monitor severe events as they happen.
Hail maps are useful to identify where hail has occurred. Weatherlogics produces hail maps for Canada using our hail tracking technology. Utilizing weather radar, atmospheric temperature profiles, and ground-truth hail measurements, we produce highly accurate hail maps. Here are some examples showing hail swaths and snapshots.
A snapshot shows where hail is occurring at a given point in time. Weather radar updates every 6 minutes, so snapshots can also be produced every 6 minutes during a hailstorm.
A swath shows the entire path of the hailstorm as one image. This maps it easier to identify where hail occurred because the user does not have to look at each snapshot separately.
