Landfall Update | Summary
Posting Date: September 28, 2022, 3:00:00 PM
Hurricane Ian made landfall at 3:05 pm EDT near Cayo Costa, Florida, with maximum 1-minute sustained winds near 150 mph and an estimated minimum central pressure of 940 mb. As of 3pm EDT, the center of Ian was 20 miles west-northwest of Fort Myers, Florida and was tracking north-northeast at 9 mph.
The Verisk ALERT team continues to study the ongoing impacts from Hurricane Ian, and our plan as of now is as follows:
- We will reevaluate our similar stochastic event selections Wednesday evening and Thursday morning as the storm progresses, and will provide an update, possibly including new or refined selections of events, along with a summary of the storm’s impacts so far on Thursday morning, EDT.
- On Friday morning, EDT, we will release a modeled wind footprint for Ian from Verisk Weather Solutions Respond product, along with additional details on Ian’s impacts up to that time.
- On Monday morning, London/BST, we will provide an estimated industry loss range, custom event sets for Touchstone and Touchstone Re, loss based similar stochastic events, and shapefiles of our modeled wind and storm surge footprints for Ian’s wind and storm surge impacts.
- We will also continue to monitor the potential precipitation-induced flood impacts and provide an update, including additional deliverables, next week as warranted.
If there are changes to any of the above plans, we will provide an update.
