Hazard Event Reports

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Covered Area Rainfall Event - August 4-5, 2016

In early August 2016 a tropical storm formed in the central Caribbean and evolved into a category 1 hurricane named Earl on 3 August. The storm moved to the west increasing strength just before impacting the northern Central America region, bringing tropical cyclone force winds and storm surge to Belize and Honduras on 4 August as well as heavy rainfall over Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and Mexico.

Event Briefing - Wind and Storm Surge - Tropical Cyclone Earl - August 5, 2016
Tropical Cyclone Earl affected one CCRIF member country, Belize. The preliminary runs of CCRIF’s loss model indicate that the Tropical Cyclone policy for this country did not trigger and therefore no payout is due.
Tropical Cyclone policies are designed to cover damages from wind and storm surge but not rainfall. A separate excess rainfall report will be issued for Tropical Cyclone Earl.
