Wind and Hail Risk

Understand a Portfolio’s Risk of Wind and Hail Damage from Thunderstorms, Hurricanes and Special Wind Areas | Assess Tornado Risk in and beyond Tornado Alley


Massive wind damage to properties during tornados and hurricanes is a well-known consequence of a visit from either of these powerful natural hazards. Likewise, hail damage to residential and commercial property tops the list of annual claims for most insurers.

With our Damaging Wind and Hail Risk layers, you can better understand, measure, and manage the wind and hail risk resulting from many natural hazards such as tornados, straight line winds, thunderstorms, hurricanes and special wind areas—in and beyond the obvious tornado risk within Tornado Alley.

Developed by our staff of Ph.D.-level scientists and modeled using 10 x10 kilometer (6.2 x 6.2 miles) grid cells, the Damaging Wind and Hail Risk layers allow you to:

  • Pinpoint a specific property location (unlike other products that utilize larger geographic areas like ZIP code or county)
  • Evaluate individual addresses or your complete portfolio to understand the risk of hail and wind damage to the properties you insure
  • Identify an accurate likelihood of occurrence for the three major types of damaging winds—straight-line, hurricane and tornado—as well as an aggregate score of all three
  • Used in conjunction with other natural hazard layers from CoreLogic, you can get a complete picture of all natural hazard risk to help you better price and write individual policies
