High-Resolution Data

Radar and satellite data enable the creation of LiveEvent intensity footprints in high resolution delivered with each update

Advanced Science

Numerical weather prediction (NWP) and physical modeling ensures continuous and timely information

Claims and Losses

Numbers, severity, and geographical distribution of claims and losses are provided with each update

Real-Time Data You Can't Get Anywhere Else

Only KCC LiveEvents provide detailed information on event intensities, claims, and losses for all significant events as they are occurring. High-resolution intensity footprints and loss estimates for real events are generated using the KCC reference models, which have been rigorously validated by KCC scientists. This proprietary data is continuously updated as events unfold and has proven to be accurate for individual insurers and the industry as a whole. KCC provides valuable live event information daily for SCS, days before landfall for tropical cyclones, and continuously for earthquakes, wildfires, and winter storms as they occur.

SCS Footprints By 7AM ET Daily

Severe weather occurs almost every day somewhere in the US. By providing loss estimates for all severe convective storm (SCS) activity, even that which does not reach the level of a “catastrophe,” KCC’s daily footprints empower insurers to more accurately estimate their event-level and aggregate losses. These footprints, generated by high-resolution meteorological data from the most advanced models and global sources, are automatically available for download at 7 AM ET daily.
