    How is it possible that you guys can publish disaster stats a day, even a week or longer, before the figures are released by the officials?

    Do you come from a parallel universe? Are you time travelers? or do you have a crystal ball?

      ALL of the above 😉
      We rely on powerful models that forecast geophysical, climatic, weather, population and socioeconomic events/disasters and evaluate extent of the damage, when it occurs.
      Sometimes, the models influence the outcome, but you’ll have to work that one out by yourself.
