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”.

Oklahoma earthquake insured damage expected to be less than $100M: EQECAT


OAKLAND, Calif.—The magnitude-5.6 earthquake that struck Oklahoma on Saturday likely will cost insurers less than $100 million, according to modeling firm EQECAT Inc.

The earthquake, described by the U.S. Geographical Survey as “the largest to hit Oklahoma in modern times,” was preceded by a magnitude 4.7 foreshock and followed by several aftershocks of magnitude 4 or higher, Oakland, Calif.-based EQECAT noted in a statement Tuesday.

Earthquakes of such size, the USGS also said, “are believed to be capable of striking anywhere in eastern North America at irregular intervals,” EQECAT noted.
