At AIR, we recognize the importance to catastrophe-exposed stakeholders of obtaining reliable loss information quickly—as an actual event unfolds. Our research and communications teams monitor events around the world—from bushfires in Australia, to winter storms in Europe, floods in Thailand, tornadoes in Tennessee, and tropical cyclones in virtually every ocean basin. NewsALERTs are email bulletins about actual catastrophes as they unfold. Information includes current and forecast conditions, expected and reported damage, and insight into the physical forces at work. After the fact, for modeled perils and regions, AIR provides estimates of industry losses using our detailed industry databases of insured exposure.
