Improving the Science of Hail Verification
IBHS Hail Field Research Study
Each year, severe hail events cause serious damage, and are one of the leading causes of property related claims.
In 2017, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) is continuing a multi-year, major field research effort to study hailstorms, with the goal of reducing property losses and improving weather forecast models and radar detection of hail. With this, CoreLogic® is collaborating with IBHS to use its ground truth data as one source of verification to help validate and affirm our commitment to the most precise hail algorithm in the market.
This analysis highlights the hail study and the collaboration of CoreLogic and IBHS through a 2016 severe hail event in Dalhart, Texas. This is an interactive online report which includes maps, images and multimedia content.
