Hazard Event Reports

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.

Event Briefing - Trinidad and Tobago Earthquake - April 16, 2015

A magnitude 5.2 earthquake occurred at 02:24:16 UTC (21:24:16 local time) on 16 April 2015 north west of Trinidad and Tobago. Initial estimates from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) locate the epicentre of the event at 10.859ºN, 62.459ºW, and at a depth of 76.5 km.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Trough System - November 21 - 22 2014

Interaction of the Tropical Upper Tropospheric Trough (TUTT) and the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) led to enhanced atmospheric instability and produced moderate to heavy showers with isolated embedded thunderstorms in the Eastern Caribbean on 21 and 22 November 2014.
