ALERT™ provides up-to-date information and loss estimates for major catastrophes worldwide.
Obtaining reliable information quickly as an actual catastrophe unfolds has become increasingly important for insurers, reinsurers, and investors. Beginning with Hurricane Hugo in 1989, our ALERT service has expanded to include catastrophic events as they happen globally. ALERT provides the following information, setting it apart from other such services.
Wondering if Verisk will put out an ALERT for an ongoing event? Have a question about what analytics we provide for a given peril or region? The "ALERT Posting Process and Deliverables" document covers general information about our real-time service as well as guidelines for what we’ll deliver and when, and is a valuable resource for any user of Verisk’s extreme event models and software who deals with live event response.
