The ClimRes tool has now been updated with the data on insurance compensation payments due to losses caused by storms, floods, landslides, and storm surges that occurred in 2015 and 2016.
The source of the data is the Norwegian Natural Perils Pool (NPP). We have also added the data on insurance compensation payments due to losses caused by water intrusion. All values have been adjusted according to the inflation index calculated for 2016 (based on the Consumer Price Index, Konsumprisindeksen, Statistisk sentralbyrå).

A quick look at the data from 2015 reveals high compensation payments due to losses caused by strong winds, heavy rain and storm surges recorded in Hordaland and Rogaland during the storm Nina on January 10 2015 (see Screenshot 1), and also in Lofoten during the storm Ole on February 6 2015 (see Screenshot 2). There were also floods in southern Norway in 2015 – the highest compensation was paid out in Lund (Rogaland). In 2016, apart from compensation payments due to losses caused by water intrusion in the cities of Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim, high insurance compensation was paid in the county of Møre og Romsdal due to losses caused by the storm Tor that occurred on January 29.
