2020’s Dangerous Weather So Far
The weather in the US is following right along with the trend of a destructive 2020. Just because a pandemic is running rampant through the world doesn’t mean that mother nature is going easy on us this year. Severe storms are sweeping through the nation, and we’re already seeing the cost of hail damage rapidly growing.
Severe Storms On The Rise
Across the nation, dangerous weather is emerging as warmer fronts bring tornadoes, hailstorms, hurricanes, and other severe storms.
We started the year with the Australian bush fires, where the smoke reached completely around the world. This fire alone cost over $100,000,000,000 in damages. Then in June, the Sahara Desert’s sand coated much of the Midwest. Usually, this sand occurrence happens during summer months, but this year it was especially dense and it covered a lot more ground.
Beginning on May 16th, 2020, months ahead of hurricane season was even expected to begin, the first-named hurricane, Hurricane Aurther, touched down in Florida and North Carolina, as well as Cuba, Bahamas, and Bermuda. Hurricane costs alone have a hefty price tag of over $1,750,000,000,000 in damage repair between the years of 1980 and 2019.
Similarly, tornados have not gone unseen in the midst of these weather disasters. In Mississippi, three EF4 tornadoes were recorded in the span of 1 week less than 50 miles apart. Bystanders even captured an extremely rare occurrence on video where 5 tornadoes touched down simultaneously in Mexico City.
Out of 90 severe storms in 2019, 49 were from thunderstorms, totaling to over $27,000,000,000 in damages and loss.
In fact, thunderstorms are one of the leading storms that create hail damage. The need for hail dent repair accumulates in just a few seconds during a storm. In Colorado and Texas combined, over 700 hail events have happened, including storms as recent as August 2nd in Texas*.
The Price to Pay After Severe Storms
With each natural disaster, comes the hefty price tag.
Between the beginning of 2020 to now, the US has already reached 10 billion dollars in cost from weather disasters. By May, the average from over 40 years is 3.05 severe storms that cost 1 billion dollars–2020 had already peaked past the average to 10 major disasters by the time May rolled around.
Insurance companies cover most of the damage, but there are still costs that occur on your end. Specifically, insurance companies have a deductible amount that goes directly with your monthly payments. The higher your deductible is, the less you pay in your monthly premiums.
