Modelling Windstorm, Hailstorm, Tornado & Severe Thunderstorm Risks

Annually the US, Canada, Europe and Australia are effected by billions in losses as a consequence of severe convective storms or sub-perils of these storms. Severe windstorms, tornadoes and thunderstorms can be sub-perils triggered by a single major event or can be multiple individual events over the course of a given time period. They can no longer be viewed as attritional risks. The losses from events such tornados, hailstorms, lightning and straight-line wind that can be the onset or the result of an extreme occurrence, for example a thunderstorm outbreak or a hurricane, can be catastrophic.

Infinite Observations ZineQx Severe Storm Model provides convective

cat model solutions that simulates, assesses and manages the extreme loss volatility constituted by these extraordinarily localized peril of possible severe convective storm risk. We use a combination of historical or stochastic events data and statistical or mathematically derived data set and physical simulations to evaluate event probabilities and generate the frequency, intensity, and geographical distributed robust record of severe convective storm outbreaks with a high likelihood while implementing specific damage functions to disassociate their distinct impacts on the assets, such as building, inventory and business disruption, of our clients.

Severe Thunderstorm Models

There is abundant historical data regarding straight-line winds, hail, and tornadoes. However, these data sets reflect reporting biases because of sparse populated areas, non-reporting of localized events and occurrences that go unnoticed. To compensate for this lack of data because of non-reporting issues a smoothing technique can be applied to the data to give a more physically realistic representation and to include locations that have experienced major activity but have been left out of historical records. The smoothing techniques leverages high-resolution meteorological parameters, statistical and physical analyses to determine favorable spatial and temporal conditions for severe thunderstorm formation. The result is a complete geospatial catalogue of severe thunderstorm hazard that can be utilized to inform various organization in the industry with regard to supercell severe thunderstorm risk.

Quantifying Losses Large & Small

Major thunderstorms can last for several days at time and have an impact across multiple countries or states. However, the individual constituents of an outbreak of such a thunderstorm, tornadoes, hailstorms, and straight winds, are often very localised and last just minutes. To capture the losses from both the large and small effects Infinite Observations employs a high-resolution granular damage mapping for each specific sub-peril, based on satellite and radar data from meteorological organisation in North America, Europe and Australia along with advanced clustering analyses techniques. This yields models with exceedance probability curves that can be used to determine losses resulting from large outbreak and smaller events. (Weighed) damage functions are generated by the model for each specific sub-peril, which include factors such as gust wind velocity, impact energy, construction types, building codes, seasonality, etc. The models can be validated in its entirety or model component can be validate independently against information and research from industry sources.
