Weather Map Added to ClaimsJournal.com
November 11, 2011
Wells Publishing, Inc. announces the addition of a weather map to ClaimsJournal.com, the company's website for news and information for property/casualty claims professionals. The interactive map displays live weather conditions throughout the United States and can be customized according to the needs of each individual user.
"The weather map is a valuable addition to our website," said Denise Johnson, editor of Claims Journal. "Because a large percentage of property claims are a result of severe weather, it is helpful to have access to current weather conditions. During hurricane season, for example, website visitors can track the development and progress of hurricanes in real time," she said. "They can even mark specific locations on the map and select what type of weather to display including rain, show, hail, wind, tornado and lightening."
The addition of the weather map to ClaimsJournal.com is the latest of several improvements to the website, which has seen a growth of 30% in traffic over the last 12 months. "We are excited about the addition of the weather widget to ClaimsJournal.com," said Adam Dunford, vice president of New Business Development at Wells Publishing. "We have worked hard to improve our website, and it's gratifying to see the resulting increase in traffic. We are confident the weather map will allow us to continue that trend," he said.
