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”.

European storm Eberhard to cost insurers up to $1.7 billion: AIR

Storm Eberhard damage in Germany

Insured losses due to wind from Winter Storm Eberhard will range between €900 million and €1.5 billion ($1.02 billion and $1.70 billion), according to AIR Worldwide.

The majority of insured losses from the storm — which first struck the U.K., the Netherlands, and Belgium on March 9 and 10, then began impacting Germany before heading farther east and affecting Austria, the Czech Republic and Poland — are expected in Germany, the Boston-based catastrophe risk modeling firm said in a statement on Thursday. The winter storm felled trees and caused power outages and travel disruption.

Eberhard followed on the heels of Freya/Bennet, which affected Wales and England on March 3, bringing strong winds and some flooding, then impacted Germany and parts of France and Denmark through March 5; Laura/Cornelius, which affected the U.K. and Scandinavian countries later the same week; and Dragi, which affected Northern Europe just before Eberhard, according to AIR.
