Florida Risk

Catastrophe Modeling

  • Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodology
    The commission was created by the Legislature as an independent panel of experts to evaluate computer models and other recently developed or improved actuarial methodologies for projecting hurricane losses.
  • Florida's Public Hurricane Loss Projection Model
    This model was produced to be "transparent” to homeowners and independent of the insurance industry and state regulatory agencies. See a December 2011 presentation to the Senate Subcommittee on General Government Appropriations.
  • Private Hurricane Loss Projection Models
    These models, created by private companies, are typically accessed only by insurance companies.
