Related news In the U.S., it notes that three stretches of severe weather also impacted the U.S. in July, which caused combined economic and insured losses that are expected to reach hundreds of millions of dollars. “With the calendar turning into August, the focus in the United States begins to shift from tornadoes to hurricanes as we begin to enter the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane season,” notes Steve Jakubowski, president of Impact Forecasting. “The U.S. remains in a record stretch without a major hurricane landfall (Category 3+), though recent history with Superstorm Sandy (2012), Hurricane Irene (2011) and Hurricane Ike (2008) shows that storms with weaker intensities can still cause catastrophic damage,” he adds. “Historical averages suggest that the U.S. is overdue for a major hurricane landfall, and we’ll watch to see what the rest of the 2013 season brings.” The report also notes that China suffered three stretches of severe rainfall in July, which killed more than 225 people and caused economic losses in excess of US$1.0 billion; an earthquake there killed at least 95 people, injured 2,840 others, damaged or destroyed 80,000 homes, and caused total economic losses of US$3.25 billion; and, three tropical cyclones affected Asia causing almost US$900 million in economic damages.

According to Chicago-based Impact Forecasting, the catastrophe modeling division of reinsurance broker Aon plc, the record rainfall in Toronto resulted in the second billion-dollar natural disaster of 2013. The flooding in the Calgary area earlier in the year was the first big loss event. It says that total economic losses from the Toronto storm are estimated to approach $1.5 billion, with roughly half of that cost being covered by insurance ($750 million).

Head coach Hue Menzies is hoping the Reggae Girlz will create a big impression when they face Panama in their farewell friendly international at the National Stadium on Sunday, their last game at home before departing for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Menzies, who was speaking to the press at the National Stadium yesterday, after the team’s first training session ahead of Sunday’s matchup, also believes the Panamanians will provide a good test. “Panama is a good team, (they are) very organised and they don’t give up. They are very patient, so it’s a good test, a farewell game and we want to leave an impression,” Menzies said. Attacking football “We will play attacking style football and see how fit they (Panama) are. Our transition is important for us and we have some special players we want to showcase, so hopefully they can turn up and put on a show.” The coach also believes that it is important to continue preparing a large group of players for any possibility. “We have some good news on a couple of the player seeking clearance from FIFA, but we are still waiting on paperwork. Once that is completed and we can solidify in the next 48 (hours), we can name the 23 (players who will make the World Cup squad) and start preparing for the World Cup. We have created a pool, because a lot of these things can happen, but we feel we have a good group we can choose from,” Menzies added. “Obviously we don’t have everybody because of the FIFA window, so they (other players) will join us in Miami, but we feel we have a good pool of players and that’s what we want to create, because after the World Cup we are going to have many things going on so we have to create a pool of players. “But we want to solidify the (final squad of) 23 (players) then start working on some functional training and obviously fitness is important. We want everybody because it’s a journey and every game we feel we have to change things up and we want to make sure we maintain the same pace every game, so we have to change personnel,” said Menzies.
