Abstract

Hurricane Sandy caused an estimated $65 billion in economic losses to residences, business owners, and infrastructure owners.1 It is the second most costly natural disaster in recent years in the United States, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but it is not an outlier; economic and insured losses from devastating natural catastrophes in the United States and worldwide are climbing.
