So far in 2018, we’ve experienced two Nor’Easter storms that have resulted in an estimated $2.8 billion dollars in damages. In looking a back at 2017, “…the U.S. experienced 16 weather and climate disasters with losses exceeding $1 billion, with total costs of approximately $306 billion – a new U.S. annual record,” according to the recent NOAA report. Early adaptation is key to preparing for and preventing future damages.
