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”.

VERACRUZ, Mexico—Hurricane Karl lashed Mexico’s Gulf Coast over the weekend, causing at least 12 deaths and leaving insurers with losses estimated at less than $400 million.

The storm produced flooding and landslides in Veracruz and other parts of the south-central region after making landfall Sept. 17.

EQECAT Inc., a catastrophe modeling company based in Oakland, Calif., said Saturday that it estimated losses at less than $400 million, adding that the figure is based on actual wind speed footprints and the severity of flooding, both of which were uncertain late last week.
