Welcome to our twentieth edition of Four For the Week (44TW)!To look through past editions, feel free to view our blog. This week we look at insurance carrier claims organizations as they respond to Covid-19 challenges, the impact of California fires in 2020, and U.S. economies readiness for hurricane season. We close it out this week with an article on fire tornados. Enjoy!

Strategy & Innovation

Like many industries, insurance carrier claims organizations are having to adjust to the long term implications of Covid-19. Claims leaders are taking swift action to protect customers and employees while maintaining the quality of their services. Each response has been tailored to each line of business, but overall there have been strategic shifts to emerge from the pandemic smarter and stronger.

California firesCalifornia is really taking the heat in 2020. With fire tornados, dry lightning, and wildfires, there are currently 360 fires in California and 6,754 this year. Considering the fire season does not peak until September and October, these are daunting statistics. Governor Newsom has ordered a state of emergency, while 21,000 residents have vacated their homes and over 10,000 acres of land have burned. While the heat forecast has subsided, the risk of blackouts still threatens most of the state.

Technology & Preparedness

This storm season has been predicted to be one of the largest in history amidst a pandemic. This has raised many logistical questions for claims organizations, cities, and citizens in the soon to effected areas as Laura heads to shore. The companies and cities are having to be more strategic than ever this year. Gone are the days where we could open one giant storm shelter and have everyone pile in. With social distancing, our safest option might be hotels, but at what cost?

Fire Tornado sky

The thought of fire tornados might sound apocalyptic, but it seems to align with the rest of the events this year. The “firenado” was recorded in Loyalton California by the National Weather Service. This rare occurrence sparked the first-ever fire tornado warning. There have only been four other firenados recorded in the past 20 years, so each one brings new insights for meteorologists
