Damage Betyond Comprehension

In the wake of last Saturday’s storms which caused “damage beyond comprehension” and claimed 10 lives in Ontario, experts expect severe weather events to escalate in both in frequency and scale. For those wondering what they can do to prepare and protect themselves and their families there are relevant resources available to you.

The Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR) has free resources on how to prepare for and mitigate their losses from severe weather events including wind and flood.

The ICLR is a world-class centre for multi-disciplinary disaster prevention research and communication. ICLR was established by Canada’s property and casualty insurance industry as an independent, not-for-profit research institute affiliated with Western University. Institute staff and research associates are international leaders in wind and seismic engineering, atmospheric science, risk perception, hydrology, economics, geography, health sciences, public policy and a number of other disciplines.

ICLR’s mandate is to confront the alarming increase in losses caused by natural disasters and to work to reduce disaster deaths, injuries and property damage. Disaster damage has been doubling every five to seven years since the 1960s. The greatest tragedy is that many disaster losses are preventable.
