Hurricane Vulnerability Score

Computer vision analyzes aerial imagery and detects property-level vulnerabilities such as roof condition, tree overhang, debris, and defensible space, and displays an easy-to-understand 1-5 vulnerability score. The lower the score, the worse the risk.

The score is trained on historical claims/damages.

Hurricane Ida Case Study

A comparison between how Betterview-scored homes fared during a hurricane.


During Hurricane Ida, two homes on the same street in LaPlace, LA had vastly different outcomes. The first, with a Hurricane Vulnerability  Score of three and good defensible space, survived with minimal damage. The nearby home with a Vulnerability Score of two and less defensible space suffered significant roof and structural damages after the hurricane.

With Betterview's Hurricane Risk Insights, you can do more than just identify properties with high vulnerability scores and proactively recommend mitigation steps to policyholders. You can become the insurance hero that helps make homes and businesses more hurricane resilient, avoiding massive disruption and supporting recovery.
