Cyclone Vulnerability Score

Computer vision models analyse our high-resolution aerial imagery to identify property vulnerability, spotlighting factors like tree overhang, roof shape, and roof condition. All relevant spotlights are combined into a Cyclone Vulnerability Score, which is trained on historical claims and damage. Graded from 1 (most vulnerable) to 5 (least vulnerable), this score is a reliable indicator of a property’s cyclone vulnerability.

Case study: Hurricane Ida

In 2021, we scored two adjacent properties in LaPlace, LA, U.S. which was then hit hard by Hurricane Ida. The higher-scoring property was relatively unharmed, while the lower-scoring property experienced major roof and structural damage — demonstrating that our Cyclone Vulnerability Score is a clear indicator of risk.
