Hydrometerological phenomena coverage in Mexico

Mexico is a country vulnerable by its geographical location to natural phenomena, the impact of these events has significant economic and social repercussions. The rain and hurricanes season is fast approaching, it's time to take preventive measures and secure your heritage/Patrimony.

This coverage includes the material damage caused by the following  Hydrometereological events:

Mud Avalanches
Mud sliding caused by floods or rains.

Hail
Frozen precipitation that falls with force in ice grain form. Under this concept in addition the damages caused by the obstruction in the pluvial water slopes will be covered.

Frost
Consisting of climatic phenomenon the unexpected reduction of the room temperature at inferior levels to the point of freezing of the water in the occurrence place.

Hurricane
Flow of water and air of great magnitude, moving in trajectory circular around a center of low pressure, on the marine or terrestrial surface with equal or greater tip speed of winds to 118 kilometers per hour, that has been identified like so by the organisms officially authorized for that intention.

Flood
The accidental temporary cap of the ground by water, as a result of deviation, underflow or breakage of the retaining walls of rivers, channels, lakes, reservoirs, pools and other deposits or water obstacles to opened sky, natural or artificial.

- that the flood that it damaged the assured goods has covered at least one hectare.

Swell

Snow Fall
Crystal precipitation ice in form of flakes.

Stormy winds
Winds that at least reach the category of tropical depression according to the Beaufort scale or superior to 50 kilometers per hour.  The applicable cover will be that that originates in form immediate the direct damages to the assured goods, independently of the meteorological phenomenon that originates them.
