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”.

U.K. government to review June floods


LONDON—The U.K's Department for Environment, Food And Rural Affairs has launched a review into last month's severe flooding.

The "Lessons Learned Review" will look at how the recent floods were managed and responded to by the Environment Agency, local authorities, the emergency services and others. "It is vital that we learn lessons now about how to manage and respond to this type of disaster in the future," Environment Secretary Hilary Benn said in a statement.

The review, which will be carried out by the Cabinet Office with support from DEFRA, will seek views from those involved in the floods. It will also consider flood risk management, the emergency response and the recovery from the floods.

More than 37,000 properties, including some 7,000 businesses, are reported to have been affected by the floods which are expected to cost insurers £1.5 billion ($3.04 billion).

"It is estimated that thousands of people are still out of their homes with around 300 in emergency accommodation in Sheffield and Doncaster and Hull," said Mr. Benn said.
