7.4 magnitude earthquake hits southern Mexico

June 23, 2020

A major earthquake struck the southern coastline of Mexico today at 10:29 a.m. local time, with an epicenter near El Coyul, 6.8 miles southwest of Santa María Zapotitlán in Oaxaca state. The quake triggered a tsunami warning for a radius of 1,000 km along the coasts of Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

The quake caused tremors in Mexico City, 190 miles north of the epicenter, and it could be felt as far as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. At this time, earthquake damage in Oaxaca state is considered light to moderate according to the US Geological Survey (USGS) ShakeMap.

Norway flood alerts

June 29, 2020

Flood alerts continue in parts of Norway. Heavy snow melting has led to stronger water flow in the Lo and Stryn rivers in Stryn, and the water level in Mjøsa has now reached an orange alert and is expected to rise slowly by 5-to-10 cm over the next couple days. Orange alerts rarely occur and can cause serious injury. A yellow alert is also in place for Deler av Langfjella i Sør-Norge due to heavy snow melting. While the increased water flow in the mountainous areas of southern Norway has largely culminated, the water flow is expected to rise slightly through tomorrow in Gudbrandsdalslågen.

Sedgwick would like to ensure that our clients know we are ready to support during this potentially difficult time. Learn more about our flood response capabilities or contact our property team listed below.
