Increasingly severe and frequent weather events have devastated new regions of the country and no longer seem to follow a formal seasonal pattern.

In fact, NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information characterizes 2020 as a ‘historic year of extremes,’ reporting a record 22 weather or climate events that together reached $95 billion in damages in the United States.

The pressure for risk professionals to be prepared for multiple natural disasters at once (expected or not) highlights the need to evolve the way the industry helps organizations around the globe plan for, manage, respond to and recover from natural disasters.
