The Forecast Zip Code Reports consists of a Summary Report, Impact Analysis and a Detailed Analysis.
The Impact Analysis report
summarizes the information by Zip Code to give an indication of the overall forecasted
impact of the storm. The user is able to establish up to 10 (3 in EM/Pro) additional
data fields which are appropriate to their business. In the example below, the Auto
Policy and Home Policy information might be of interest to an insurance company. The
ZIP CODE impact analysis report is much more accurate than the County Report as the zip
code information is at a more "granular" level.
The detailed Zip Code report shows additional information on the forecasted impact of a storm. It gives an hourly "blow by blow" description of the expected wind speeds and wind direction as well as other important information. The example below is the forecast for Zip Code 33052 (Marathon, FL) with the approach of Hurricane Georges.
