Severe weather threatens the U.S.

August 04, 2020

Tropical Storm Isaias
Isaias made landfall in North Carolina as a category 1 hurricane late Monday causing coastal flooding, structural fires and collapses, and power outages for more than 500,000 homes and businesses. Now downgraded to a tropical storm, it's gradually weakening as it tracks north up the East Coast — threatening storm surge flooding, tornados, heavy rain, strong winds and more power outages. Both Virginia and New Jersey have declared states of emergency. According to the National Weather Service, the system could bring the strongest winds to New York City since Superstorm Sandy almost eight years ago.


Apple Fire, Southern California
A massive wildfire that started on Friday evening continues to burn in Riverside and San Bernardino counties, scorching more than 26,000 acres and leading to the evacuation of nearly 8,000 residents. The fire was only 15% contained as of this morning and is among several wildfires across California. At least five structures have been destroyed and thousands are threatened.

Sedgwick's yacht surveyors/adjusters are ready for Hurricane Isaias

July 31, 2020

Hurricane Isaias is brewing and forecasted to impact the islands of the northern Caribbean and the southeastern U.S. with heavy rain, winds and building seas. With hurricane season upon us and activity in the Atlantic starting to heat up, Sedgwick has formulated and enacted a comprehensive and strategic operation and response plan in order to be able to service all our clients’ needs in the industry with regard to large and small yachts, commercial vessels and watercraft.

Sedgwick has an assembled, dedicated team of marine/yacht surveyors tactically located throughout Florida, the east coast states and the Gulf states so as to have coverage anywhere that may be impacted by impending hurricanes and other tropical systems. Our footprint covers all areas that may be impacted, and we have the ability to be on scene immediately following any CAT event, boots on the ground. This allows us to provide a comprehensive and elite level of service which cumulates in mitigating overall losses due to our expertise in the field, ability to be on scene within hours after the storm and firsthand knowledge and experience with all aspects when handling large and small losses and large claim volumes as related to CAT events.

Our primary base of operations is located in southeast Florida, and the Yacht Practice team remains on standby and ready to assist with any scope of loss, both in the surveying and adjusting fields.

Assignments can be emailed to marineclaims@sedgwick.com, and we look forward to assisting you!
