AUTOMOBILE   HOMEOWNERS   BUSINESS   TOWING   FARM

We've all watched the news lately and all the talk of extreme weather events has you wondering if there are more disasters these days or is it simply the news media?  So how large are these natural disasters in terms of cost to our economy and insurers.  There are some of the largest since 2000:

1.)  Hurricane Katrina - $151 billion
2.)  Hurricane Sandy - $67 billion
3.)  Hurricane Ike - $33 billion
4.)  California Droughts - $31 billion to date
5.)  April 2011 Midwestern tornados - $11 billion

Since 2010 how many tornados and hurricanes are occurring?

Interestingly, tornado numbers are trending down.  Starting in 2010 - 2015 here are the annual numbers:  1,543; 1,894; 938; 907; 888; 874

Hurricane numbers have been fairly normal with exception of 2010.  Here are the number from 2010-2015:  12, 7 , 10, 2, 6, pending.
