Hazard Event Reports

Event Breifing - Wind and Storm Surge - Windward Islands - September 24, 2019

Karen was the twelfth tropical cyclone in the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season. On 22 September it developed as a tropical storm to the northeast of Trinidad and Tobago. On the same day, it passed over the waters between Grenada and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines at a distance of approximately 45 km from both countries.

Event Breifing - Wind and Storm Surge - The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands - September 17, 2019

Humberto was the ninth tropical cyclone in the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season. On 12 September it developed as a tropical depression over Bahamas Central1 at a distance of
approximately 350 km (217 mi) from the Turks and Caicos Islands. These islands were marginally affected by tropical-storm-force winds. In the following days, Humberto
strengthened gradually, moving northwest and on 14 September it became a tropical storm.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Covered Area Rainfall Event - Jamaica - August 16-18, 2019

A tropical wave produced periods of rain/showers and thunderstorm activity over north-eastern Jamaica on 16 August 2019.

This event briefing describes the impact of the precipitation on the island of Jamaica over the period 16-18 August 2019. The Rainfall Index Loss (RIL) calculated for this Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE), which occurred in Jamaica, starting on 16 August and ending on 18 August 2019 was below the attachment point of Jamaica’s Excess Rainfall policy and therefore no payout is due.

Event Briefing - Earthquake - Nicaragua - July 31, 2019

Nicaragua was the only CCRIF member country where peak ground acceleration, computed with the SPHERA model, was greater than 0.01g for this earthquake.

Event Briefing - Earthquake - Nicaragua - July 8, 2019
