Exactly What Does .25″ of Rain Per Hour Look Like?

The National Weather Service has a collection of video clips showing rain at different hourly rainfall rates (from .05″ to 1.50″). These will hopefully help everyone better understand how specific rainfall rates look in real time.

If you are concerned about rain at your event, or wonder if your event could tolerate .25″ of rain, check out the videos to see for yourself. We’re also here to help you talk through your concerns.

Financial Relief

What Is Rain Insurance?

With a rain insurance policy, ‘proof of loss’ is not required for the insurance to pay a claim. A rain insurance claim occurs simply when the defined rainfall amount is recorded by a verifiable independent and localized source (not at an airport) during the defined time period and the rainfall amount meets or exceeds the predetermined threshold. When rainfall keeps participants home, but event cancellation is not necessary, rain insurance can help recoup lost revenue. Plus, claim payments are quick (typically mailed in less than two weeks) to offer immediate financial relief.

Vortex Insurance offers a quick and straightforward way for you to access rain insurance quotes. Gain peace of mind even if rain attends your next event!
