Thousands of data reports from a variety of sources are assimilated and physics-based processes are run to determine what the conditions were during the course of the storm. This combined with storm surge/tide data helps forensic experts determine what the wind and surge conditions likely were at a specific address. The data can be used in conjunction with other official weather data, bulletins and reports to determine if the storm was a named storm at the time of landfall and if named-storm deductibles were triggered. The data can be presented in detailed tables and graphs, and these reports can then be used to make coverage decisions necessary for claims processing and resolving any litigation that could arise.
