BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Flooding has been particularly severe in the north of England.

London-based KPMG said that economic losses from December's floods could reach as much as £5.8 billion ($8.60 billion).

Winter Storm Frank is slated to hit the United Kingdom on Tuesday, and nine severe flood warnings are in place across the country, according to the U.K. Meteorological Office.
