Insurance industry learning key lessons from Hurricane Harvey

Property casualty insurers rely on research to point out ways to mitigate damage from future storms

On Aug. 17, Mark Hanna of the Insurance Council of Texas was in the middle of preparations for what he does every August — traveling the length of Texas’ Gulf Coast to get the word out in visits with local media organizations on how coastal residents should prepare themselves for hurricane season.

On this day, however, Hanna noticed something interesting in a NOAA weather satellite image of the tropics. He grabbed a screenshot and posted it to Twitter with the following message:

“On the eve of our Hurricane Tour, we might want to keep an eye out for what may become Hurricane Harvey.”
