Committee Chair Dr. Jack Nicholson, who also serves as Chief Operating Officer of the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, will lead a discussion of changes to Florida law, specifically Sections 627.0628, 627.715 and 627.062, Florida Statutes. The Commission is required to adopt flood standards by July 1, 2017.
At a September 30 meeting of Commission’s Acceptability Process Committee, Dr. Nicholson established the following guidelines for the flood loss model development process:
- Both flood and hurricane loss models will have the same deadlines and submission requirements
- Hurricane loss and flood loss will be modeled independently
- Hurricane and flood modeling standards will be separate
- The failure of a hurricane model will not impact the acceptability of a flood model, and vice versa
