As we watch the tropics and the Gulf of Mexico, Adjusters are starting to get the premature stand-by calls for storms that may or may not develop or cause damage that require CAT teams. While there is still great uncertainty in the prediction models, there is even greater uncertainty in the intensity of the storm. As you may know, when Leading Edge Claims issues a stand-by alert, it’s because claims are most likely imminent.
We’re closely watching Invest 92L. At present, the disturbance has a 90% chance of cyclone formation over the next 48 hours and is expected to move westerly in the Gulf. The latest spaghetti models are coming closer together, with Louisiana and possibly East Texas being targeted.
A team of Hurricane Hunters is planning a flyover to investigate the storm later today (Wednesday, 7/10/19). Leading Edge Claims has Carriers with exposure across the Gulf of Mexico and we will keep you updated on all deployment or stand-by opportunities as they become more evident.
Today is the last day to register with the $100 discount.
We have a great line-up of speakers and classes that will provide 12 CE credits, including the 2-hour ethics requirement.
Come join us at the beautiful Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, TX and meet with Leading Edge Claims' management, clients, and some industry experts who are exhibiting at this event.

Leading Edge Claims sends our deepest sympathies to the victims of Hurricane Michael. What an unprecedented hurricane this is! The storm is still packing 50 mph sustained winds over Augusta, Georgia.
Our first wave of adjusters have been deployed and help is on the way! We will continue to monitor the event and keep our adjusters on alert as our Carriers issue more deployment requests across the southeast.

As the center of Tropical Storm Florence moves slowly westward across eastern South Carolina coast, we are seeing heavy rains and catastrophic flooding in parts of North and South Carolina. Leading Edge Claims has adjusters in place to assist those affected by this catastrophic event. We are keeping those impacted by this storm and those who are traveling to help in our thoughts and prayers as Florence continues to damage homes, business, and communities on the US East Coast.
