Windstorms - A Shifting threat?

Allianz Re, Singapore, Jul 01, 2017

Dr Markus Stowasser of Allianz Re shares his views on the changing storm patterns that may be shifting further north - a problem for the coastal areas of South East Asia.

Last year was one of the 10 costliest years on record with total damages reaching US$175 billion due to a number of devastating earthquakes and powerful storms. Research shows that these storm patterns may be shifting further north, and that the storms of the future that make landfall could be even stronger and more devasting.
