The platform supports custom models for all peril types, including flood and severe convective storm (SCS). Users will be able to track tornadoes and SCS in real time, immediately assess how much exposure they have in the affected area, and estimate likely losses.

RiskInsight Version 4.3 also offers expanded event catalog creation capabilities and an updated job manager that makes it easier to set up complex analyses and distribute them across multiple processors.
