Hurricanes, Flooding, Winds and more…
A few short weeks ago few businesses in America’s south were thinking about disaster recovery, but then the weather changed.
Hurricane Harvey decimated parts of Texas and southwest Louisiana when it hit the region a couple weeks ago, destroying billions of dollars’ worth of property. Not to be outdone, Hurricane Irma, possibly the strongest hurricane this country has ever seen was 400 miles wide. It had winds over 185 miles-per-hour for 37 hours, which is also a record, and it spawned the largest evacuation in United States history.
Now that these storms are behind us, one catastrophe modeling company, estimates that Harvey has caused between $25 billion and $35 billion in losses that will be covered by insurance. The total economic damage, which includes uninsured losses, could be between $70 billion and $90 billion. Enki Research, said the Irma situation “looks pretty grim.” They estimated that Irma could cause $172 billion in total U.S. damage.
