Earthquake shakes southwestern Mexico

September 09, 2021

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit near the resort city of Acapulco in southwestern Guerrero state on September 7. It affected areas hundreds of miles away, including Mexico City. Following the quake, 92 aftershocks were reported, including one that measured 5.2 magnitude.

As of Tuesday night, around 1.6 million people were without power across five states in Mexico. There was damage to phone lines and electrical wiring along with some blackouts reported in Tlatelolco.

The majority of damage impacted wall and floor coverings, windows and signage. In Guerrero, there were reports of structural damage to older buildings, fallen utility poles and the collapse of a church façade. There have been no reports of severe damage.

We’re here to support you
We have a CAT response team, including civil engineers and adjusters, already deployed to the impacted area. They are on standby to receive claims. We also have remote inspection capabilities if travel is impossible due to COVID-19, security concerns or the level of damage. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact our property team listed below.

Widespread flooding hits many Malaysia states

December 20, 2021

Floods swept through the Klang Valley, parts of Selangor as well as the East Coast of Malaysia due to a one-in-a-100-year heavy rainfall from December 17 to 19. The effects of Typhoon Rai that lashed the Philippines and the high tides occurring during the monsoon season further aggravated the situation.

The flooding has displaced tens of thousands, blocked roadways and disrupted traffic at Port Klang. We’re also beginning to learn the breadth and depth of the losses to commercial and residential properties. To those impacted, we are with you and we are here to help. Sedgwick's dedicated team of 100 adjusters (including adjusters mobilized from the other states) are onsite to support clients and their insureds with flood claims during this difficult time.

Catastrophe contacts
We are currently monitoring our claim numbers and can also draw on the expertise from Sedgwick colleagues across the nation to assist us at short notice. If there are any specific requirements, please contact our catastrophe team listed below.
