Hurricanes and wind

The 2018 Hurricane Season is now in full swing with the recent threats to Hawaii with Hurricane Lane, Mississippi with Tropical Depression Gordon, and now the impending threat of Hurricane Florence on the East Coast. An up-to-date hurricane emergency action plan can be your best defense for safeguarding your property, business and workers. Relying on years of first-hand experience and extensive research, Zurich uses its Post-Event Review Capability (PERC) methodology to illustrate challenges faced by risk managers addressing hurricane, wind or flood related hazards.
