Hail-Jeannie: Launch of new platform for real-time hailstorm damage estimates in Australia
The new loss estimates tool “Hail-Jeannie Australia” provides the insurance industry with real-time information on estimated hail sizes and losses from severe hail storms in Australia. Hail-Jeannie uses weather radar data to model market losses for the last six hours to produce a real-time loss estimate. This information is updated every six hours and is available around the clock.
Evolution of the “Wind Jeannie” platform
PERILS has also updated the Wind Jeannie platforms for Europe and Australia. Highlights of the enhanced features include advanced forecast animations of approaching storms and detailed interactive Web GIS maps for evaluating loss forecasts. Loss forecasts are continuously updated in real time every 12 hours. In addition, a wind jeannie platform for Florida hurricanes is currently under development.
