2012 Hurricane season- Tropical Depression 11 now forms in Eastern Atlantic as Isaac approaches Gulf Coast

August 28, 2012

When it rains it pours!

The Hurricane Center reports in the 5pm ET report that Hurricane Isaac winds are now 80 mile per hour as it approaches the Louisiana coast.

You will also notice on the NOAA link that they have now issued the first advisory for Tropical Depression Eleven in the Eastern Atlantic expecting it to soon research Tropical Storm status.

You can locate both here:


For wonderful graphics, I also recommend viewing Ralph Tropical Weather’s hurricane site on both on this link:

Our Prayers are with those in MS and LA flood zones this weekend- Articles says if spillway not opened that flooding in New Orleans could be worse than during Katrina

May 13, 2011

I had started to post a few humorous claim stories for some light hearted claim news this weekend but after checking on the status of the flooding expected in MS and LA and watching some news reports, I’d rather share this Reuters news story discussing projected flooding in MS and LA including the statement that should the spillway not be opened tomorrow that New Orleans will suffer more flooding than post Katrina:


I think when independent adjusters were hoping for assignments this year, no one ever could have asked for the severe amount of tornado damage and flooding damage which has happened just in the past few weeks.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims AND the adjusters and claims personnel working in these storm zones.
