New Mexico wildfires continue to burn

May 04, 2022

Hot, dry and windy conditions across the Southwest have led to seven wildfires in New Mexico — torching over 220,000 acres, destroying hundreds of structures, and forcing thousands to evacuate. The combined Hermits Peak/Calf Canyon fire is the second largest in New Mexico in at least 30 years and has already destroyed more than 170 homes in Mora and San Miguel counties. If the fire continues to grow, more than 15,000 homes could be threatened this week.

New Mexico isn’t alone. This year, wildfires have already burned more than 1.1 million acres, twice the number by this date in 2021, according to fire forecasters. In fact, an above-normal 2022 wildfire season is predicted. Early predictions point to 68,000 to 72,000 fires across the nation burning 8.1 to 8.3 million acres. The national average from 2001 to 2020 was 68,707 fires burning 7 million acres, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

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.

7.4 magnitude earthquake hits eastern Japan

March 18, 2022

A 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Japan's eastern Fukushima prefecture late Wednesday night. The quake cut off power to more than 2.2 million homes in 14 prefectures, derailed a bullet train near Fukushima, and closed at least one major highway for safety checks. Buildings in Tokyo shook for more than two minutes and parts of building facades tumbled into streets below in some areas, according to initial reports.

The Japan Meteorological Agency lifted a tsunami warning on Thursday morning, but urged the public to watch out for more seismic activity in the next few days and to remain vigilant over the risk of mudslides.

We're here to support you.
We are here to help and are ready to provide emergency assistance in the region. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact our property team listed below.
