Hazard Event Reports

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Covered Area Rainfall Event - October 18 2015

The Caribbean Rainfall Model (operated by Kinetic Analysis Corporation (KAC)) indicated that a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) was generated in Haiti starting and ending on 18 October 2015.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Tropical Cyclone Joaquin - October 10 2015

Tropical Cyclone (TC) Joaquin affected the Caribbean region between 30 September and 6 October 2015 with strong winds, rainfall and storm surge. According to the CCRIF Caribbean Rainfall Model, the CCRIF member countries with Excess Rainfall (XSR) policies where a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) was activated were: Haiti, Jamaica and The Bahamas. As a result, this briefing describes the reported losses and damage in Haiti, Jamaica and The Bahamas due to extreme rainfall as a result of the passage of TC Joaquin.

Event Briefing - Wind and Storm Surge - Tropical Cyclone Joaquin - October 9 2015

Tropical Cyclone Joaquin affected three CCRIF member countries: The Bahamas, Bermuda and the Turks and Caicos Islands. The preliminary runs of CCRIF’s loss model indicate that none of the Tropical Cyclone policies for these countries triggered, therefore no payout is due.

Tropical Cyclone policies are designed to cover damages from wind and storm surge but not rainfall. Some of the countries affected by rainfall from Hurricane Joaquin do have policies for excess rainfall. A separate excess rainfall report will be issued.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Tropical Cyclone Danny - August 23-24 2015

The remnants of TC Danny (AL042015) caused heavy rainfall over the island of Dominica with areas receiving nearly 2 inches (50 mm) of rain in a short period on Monday 24 August, 2015. Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and St. Kitts and Nevis were the only CCRIF member countries with Excess Rainfall policies1 that were affected by Danny. However, a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) was only triggered in Dominica, where approximately 80% of the country’s area received excess rainfall.

Event Briefing - Covered Area Rainfall Event - May 20-22, 2015

The Caribbean Rainfall Model (operated by Kinetic Analysis Corporation (KAC)) indicated that a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) was generated in Haiti starting on 20 May 2015 and ending on 22 May 2015.
