The latest CAT

Extreme weather continues to hit the U.S.

September 15, 2020

Hurricane Sally
Sally, the seventh hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic season, is crawling toward the Gulf Coast as a category 1. The storm is currently located about 105 miles south-southeast of Biloxi, Mississippi, and is anticipated to make landfall on Wednesday near the Mississippi and Alabama border. Sally's slow movement could result in life-threatening, human-height storm surge and historic flooding along the Gulf Coast. Flooding rainfall also threatens farther inland across parts of the Southeast. Damaging winds could contribute to some structural damage, downed trees and power outages.

West Coast wildfires
More than 16,000 firefighters are battling 28 major wildfires across California, where nearly a month of hot, dry weather has fueled flames. An estimated 3.2 million acres have burned in 2020, destroying more than 4,200 structures and breaking records for poor air quality. Fires extend to Oregon where crews are battling to contain more than 30 fires that have scorched more than 1 million acres. In southwest Washington and northwest Oregon, dense smoke advisories warn the visibility is less than one mile.

Tropical Storm Nana heads toward Central America

September 02, 2020

Tropical Storm Nana formed Tuesday in the Caribbean Sea and is tracking toward landfall, most likely in Belize, by early Thursday. The storm may become a hurricane just prior to landfall, possibly bringing storm surge flooding and damaging winds. Nana could also bring flooding rain to parts of Honduras, Belize, Guatemala and eastern Mexico. A tropical storm watch has been issued in Belize and northern Honduras, including Roatan Island and the Bay Islands.

The latest CAT

Hurricane Teddy on path to Canada

September 21, 2020

Hurricane Teddy continues to move north with forecasters expecting the storm to stay east of Bermuda before becoming a more powerful hurricane. It’s anticipated to cause rainfall of up to six inches ahead of striking Canada later this week as a post-tropical cyclone, according to the National Hurricane Center. Nova Scotia and Newfoundland will feel the brunt of Hurricane Teddy from Tuesday into Wednesday night. COVID-19 restrictions create additional complexity.

We're here to support you
Sedgwick would like to ensure that our clients know we are here to help. We are currently redeploying personal protective equipment (PPE) to adjusters serving the area so that we can continue to conduct site visits when and where possible. Where site visits are not possible, we're able to use our remote adjusting technology to facilitate claims resulting from the event.

Please contact us with any questions or to assist.
