    Tropical cyclones put many areas of the world at risk from strong winds, storm surges and heavy rainfall.

Our storm surge hazard zones enable our clients to pinpoint their storm surge risk with a consistent, worldwide, probabilistic and highresolution risk look-up in Swiss Re’s CatNet tool. The zones show that almost 230 million people – roughly 3% of the world’s population – are exposed to storm surge risk.
