2005’s Hurricane Season Was “Unprecedented”


The cost of damages caused by 2005’s storms is still being tabulated, but it will dwarf all previous seasonal totals. The insured losses probably will total at least 75 billion U.S. dollars, according to experts. Researcher Phil Klotzbach of Colorado State University said the total tab could be as much as 200 billion U.S. dollars, a figure he says is “just mind-boggling.”
