The Wall Street Journal revealed that Hurricane Ida, which struck the United States recently, will be among the five most damaging to the country.

According to insurance companies’ estimates, the damages caused by Hurricane Ida are estimated at between 31 and 44 billion dollars, and this amount is more than the damage caused by Hurricane Andrew in 1992, which is ranked sixth among the most damaging hurricanes, as its damages amounted to 29.7 billion dollars, according to estimates based on the value of the dollar in 2020. .

Thus, Hurricane Ida will join the four major hurricanes, which are Katrina in 2005 with damage estimated at $86.57 billion, Sandy in 2012 about $34 billion, and Harvey and Irma, both in 2017, with losses estimated at between $31 and $32 billion.

Hurricane Ida, which hit Louisiana last August 29, affected a total of 19 US states extending from the Gulf of Mexico to the northeastern US, and analysts point out that this will be a huge burden on home and car insurance companies.
