Hurricane Ian to Cost $71 Billion

Hurricane Ian has passed, and now for the economic aftermath from Enki Research:

“Ian will certainly be in the top 10 US storms and maybe take the number five slot as most costly. It will be weeks or even months before a reasonably accurate assessment of the impact of this storm will be available, so for now, we have to use computer models. The numbers range from $66 to $75 Billion; the median is $71 billion.”

When it rains, it pours … let’s hope America has enough savings to cover $71B.
