Estimated Insured Losses For Hurricane Laura

August 30, 2020

CoreLogic has estimated that the insured loss for Hurricane Laura will be between USD $8 billion and $12 billion, and with the island being home to many of the world’s leading re/insurers they can be expected to absorb some of these claims.

CoreLogic¬†said, “CoreLogic, a leading global property information, analytics, and data-enabled solutions provider, today announced updated residential and commercial storm surge and wind loss estimates for Hurricane Laura.

“According to this new data analysis, insured wind and storm surge losses for residential and commercial properties in Louisiana and Texas are estimated to be between $8 billion and $12 billion, with insured storm surge losses estimated to contribute less than $0.5 billion to this total.

“In addition to property damages, the ability to make loan payments can become compromised following a hurricane. Overall home mortgage delinquency rates [30 or more days past due, including those in foreclosure] in the Beaumont, Texas [9.3%] and Lake Charles, Louisiana [9.5%] metropolitan areas were already above the national rate [7.3%] based on the May 2020 CoreLogic Loan Performance Insights report. CoreLogic data has shown natural disasters cause a spike in mortgage delinquencies, which suggests Hurricane Laura will add to the economic hardship families are already experiencing during the pandemic.”
