AIR Worldwide has estimated that insurance and reinsurance industry losses to onshore property resulting from the wind and storm surge impacts of Hurricane Ida will be between $17 billion and $25 billion.
This estimate from AIR compares to CoreLogic’s industry loss range of $14 billion to $21 billion, and Karen Clark & Company’s re/insured loss estimate of close to $18 billion.
The catastrophe risk modeller’s insured loss estimate includes physical damage to property (residential, commercial, industrial and auto), both structures and their contents from winds, wind-borne debris, storm surge, and the impact of demand surge. But does not include hurricane precipitation-induced flood losses.
