Occurrence and loss data from around the world have been recorded by Munich Re’s Geo Risks Research unit since 1974. This unique archive of natural hazards has developed into the world’s most comprehensive database of natural catastrophes, going all the way back to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Roughly 1,000 loss events due to natural hazards are added to the NatCatSERVICE database every year.
