CAT response services: Severe weather threatens the U.S.


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.
