ImageCat creates a Financial Loss Potential Index in response to Hurricane Harvey

30 Aug 2017

As decision makers and insurers try to understand the full scope of damage from Hurricane Harvey, ImageCat has created a Financial Loss Potential Index to guide the response and recovery efforts. This map combines flooding extent and depth information from SSBN and exposed property values at a per 500m grid. This map offers a rapid view of the concentration of high flood hazard and/or high value locations at a grid level and can be used to validate loss estimates and review claims as they begin to come in.
