It is estimated that as a result of the floods that have been happening in Peru, approximately 100,000 people have lost everything and some 630,000 people have suffered damages. A new front threatens to bring more rains from the Andes, which could aggravate the consequences of the meteorological phenomena suffered over the past few weeks.
The floods are being caused by an atypical climatological phenomena of El Niño, as the sea surface of the Peruvian coastline reaches unusually high temperatures, which causes intense and unusual rainstorms on its desert coast, resulting in rivers bursting their banks and mudslides known as “huaicos”.
RTS Peru’s team of professionals, like the rest of the company, are monitoring the situation and stand ready to deploy their resources and activate their CAT Plan immediately if necessary.
RTS’ CAT Plan is a Contingency Plan that is in place to deal with any kind of complex natural catastrophe that may occur during the high-risk season, and which defines the working methods and procedures required to attend to medium to major events, depending on their scale, while assigning the teams of specialised professionals best suited to the situation and the damages in question.
RTS Peru has its own office in Lima and the company is offering its highly qualified team of specialised loss adjusters/appraisers, as well as support services from its offices in other countries, to the insurance market, for the adjustment and analyses of any losses or damages that the floods have caused.

Thanks to its long-standing experience in numerous natural catastrophes, it has the expertise and know-how required in these types of situations and in any type of catastrophic event.
The professionals from the National Meteorology and Hydrology Service (Senamhi) have issued a warning, as the forecast is that the rains will intensity during this week, especially in regions of Peru’s northern coast, the ones that have been hardest-hit by the rains in these last few days.
