Bipartisan support gives Floridians hope after Hurricane Ian

Sarasota, Florida Mayor Erik Arroyo discusses the recovery process, including bipartisan aid, after Hurricane Ian devastated his community.

An analysis of final estimated uninsured and insured damages in impacted states following Hurricane Ian reveals total flood and wind related losses are between $41 billion and $70 billion. 

The analytics and data provider CoreLogic said that that estimate includes wind loss, re-evaluated insured and uninsured storm surge loss and newly calculated inland flood loss for residential and commercial properties.

Flood loss from private insurance and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) for residential and commercial properties is estimated to be between $8 billion and $18 billion. 

That total includes both re-evaluated storm surge and new estimates for inland flooding.
