Seven out of ten of the costliest hurricanes hit the USA since the year 2000, having a large impact on the damage created by significant flood events. From the number of flood events in each state, we were also able to deduct the cost of the flood events and compare to the average house price per local state. Kentucky was shown to be the most devastated by the cost of damage sustained.
Although it was hit by only two events, these were some of the largest storm systems in memory, 2005’s Hurricane Katrina and 2008’s Hurricane Ike. These left Kentucky with damages amounting to $1.12 billion.
