Wind vs. Wave Action Class at Windstorm Insurance Conference
Public Adjuster Rick Tutwiler will be part of an expert panel that discusses Wind vs. Wave Action at the upcoming Windstorm Insurance Conference from February 1-4. This highly interactive presentation will provide insurance professionals with practical information to help separate damage to structures due to storm wind from damage caused by storm surge. The presentation begins with education regarding wind loads and how buildings respond to wind force. Storm surge and how structures respond to rising water and wave action will also be highlighted. The class will cover present knowledge in addition to a realistic hypothetical scenario regarding a structure damaged by both wind and storm surge to spur discussion that will also include the application of concurrent causation language. Information covered will include both basic and advanced topics intended to be useful for attendees of all experience levels. Besides Rick, faculty will include: Ken Gilvary, M.S., P.E., Haag Engineering Co. and Randall Horden, National Catastrophe Director, Mid-America Adjusting Services.
