Hurricane Katrina, Harvey and Maria among some of the costliest in United States
Storm Smart CEO Scot Burris assesses damage Hurricane Ian caused in Florida
Storm Smart CEO Scot Burris tells ‘The Claman Countdown’ the safety of his employees, their families and the community are his company’s top priority.
Hurricane Ian made landfall in southwestern Florida as a Category 4 storm Wednesday afternoon, bringing with it catastrophic flooding and extremely high winds.
Insurance Information Institute spokesperson Loretta Worters told FOX Business Thursday that "while it's too early to tell what the damage projections will be, many of the insurance modelers are putting it at between $20 and $40 billion."
After making landfall near Fort Myers and Cape Coral on the Gulf Coast, the storm plowed through the middle of Florida, weakened to a tropical storm and reached the Atlantic Ocean.
Ian, which strengthened back into a hurricane early Thursday evening, is expected toturn northward before hitting South Carolina Friday and moving inland, according to a public advisory from the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
