HazardHub shows more than twice the overall risk from competitive estimates – more than $77 Billion of property at risk.
With Hurricane Harvey bearing down on the Texas coastline, HazardHub has released data regarding the size and scope of potential storm surge damage from Texas hurricanes.
According to HazardHub, more than 250,000 homes and 17,000 businesses could be subjected to storm surge for hurricanes up to Category 3. If a hurricane should strengthen to a Category 4 hurricane (like the Galveston Hurricane of 1900), the number of homes potentially impacted would rise to nearly 367,000. If a Category 5 hurricane should hit Texas – which would be extremely rare, more than 500,000 Texas homes and businesses would be subjected to storm surge – more than double previous estimates.
