Flood Forecasting

Flood Foresight provides a forecast view of flood for a proactive approach to event response, enabling the application of mitigation measures and facilitating insight to potential loss estimation.


Flood Foresight is a system that provides flood inundation, depth and impact data before, during and after flood events. It provides a globally scalable framework for integrating the best available data for understanding flood events, including flood hazard maps, rainfall forecasts, hydrological models, river levels and flows, and earth observation. Once the event subsides, we can use Flood Foresight and observational data to develop a maximum flood footprint (extent and depths) across the event. Watch the video.

Flood Foresight can be used for:

  • Rapid loss forecasting, giving you added confidence in exposure management
  • Limiting exposure to live flood events by identifying underwriting embargoes based on forecast data
  • Increasing client satisfaction by moving from reactive to proactive claims management
  • Speeding up claims triage and adjusting and securing early access to claims support resources
  • Best recovery from reinsurance hours clause by defining time of onset and duration of flooding

Learn how we used Flood Foresight in recent UK Flood Events, 'Forecasting a change in flood risk management'. and to reflect on Storm Desmond much earlier.
