When Typhoon Goni hit Japan, causing catastrophic damage, AIG deployed drones to more rapidly help clients in the danger zones. In the aftermath of the typhoon, one of our Japanese clients was experiencing water damage from the ceiling of their factory. Our client needed to determine the source of the leak quickly, but it was too dangerous for anyone to venture onto the roof to perform an inspection. We knew it was important to act fast to protect our client’s property and give them the financial support they needed to recover from the typhoon. We used a drone to help locate the source of the leak. By flying the drone over the factory rooftop, our team identified the cause of the damage quickly, safely, and accurately. 

By rapidly gathering imagery, information, and data after a disaster, drones can help organizations deliver assistance sooner to the people who need it. Watch the following video to learn more about how drones can help people and businesses achieve greater resilience in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster:
