CoreLogic, a global property information, analytics and data-enabled service provider, has launched a new publicly-accessible risk and information resource centre, called Hazard HQ, which offers clients insight on the risks natural catastrophes pose to properties across the U.S.
Hazard HQ will respond to the growing demand for comprehensive risk assessment resources with insight into hazards such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, severe convective storms, wildfires, wind, and volcanic activity.
CoreLogic said the information hub will help individuals, media, and companies better understanding the growing economic impacts of natural catastrophes in their regions.
It added that the ongoing California wildfires are the subject of the latest Hazard HQ risk summary, and will continue to remain a focus as the fires move through the state.
“Mortgage and insurance professionals are struggling to see the complete picture of risk when natural catastrophes strike, particularly as these events evolve and grow as the ongoing wildfires in California have done,” said Maiclaire Bolton Smith, Senior Leader, Research & Content Strategy at CoreLogic.
“Hazard HQ was designed to drive visibility of natural catastrophe risk and act as a home base for all insights pertaining to these risks,” he added. “It’s the latest endeavor in the CoreLogic commitment to making risk information accessible as the economic impact of natural catastrophes increases.”
