Shocking Statistics About Hurricane Harvey
If you are like most people impacted by Hurricane Harvey, you likely have
heard about a so-called 100-year flood. Hurricane Harvey is not a 100-year
flood. It is a virtually unprecedented 1000-year flood. In other words,
in the history of the United States, in the history of colonial America,
the continent has never seen a violent, devastating storm like Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey dropped over 50 inches of rain in some parts of Texas,
rainfall that broke records from coast-to-coast, and from Mexico to Canada.
The average rainfall in Houston in September, the month Harvey shellacked
the state, is between 4 and 5 inches.
The storm dropped a shocking 20 trillion gallons of water across the Lone
Star State. In a major report to the Texas Legislature several years ago,
the Texas Water Development Board that the total, combined rate of water
usage across the state annually is about 5.2 trillion gallons of water.
This includes all water used for residential, commercial, industrial,
and agricultural purposes.
Exact figures will not be available for some time, perhaps even years.
Nonetheless, insurance industry experts and others project that the total
amount of property loss caused by flooding associated with Hurricane Harvey
is likely to be between $65 and $75 billion. This contrasts with approximately
$71 billion in losses associated with Hurricane Katrina a dozen years earlier.
These facts hit home to you personally if you have suffered damage to your
home or other property because of Hurricane Harvey. An early estimate
is that a homeowner who sustained damages because of Harvey could face
an average of $70,000 in losses. 50 percent of homeowners have suffered
losses above this amount.
Hurricane Harvey: Wind Versus Water Damage
A considerable number of individuals like you who file insurance claims
for Hurricane Harvey losses initially will face denials from their insurance
companies. Insurers will contend that the damage to a homeowner's
property was caused by water and flooding and not the wind of the hurricane itself.
Even if your residence, or other property, sustained damage because of
wind and water, your insurance company very well may try to deny your
claim by invoking a Texas law that permits what are known as anti-concurrent
causation clauses in insurance policies. These provisions allow an insurance
company to deny a claim when a covered and an excluded weather-related
event occur simultaneously, damaging your home. In other words, although
wind may have damaged your home, if water has also caused damage, your
insurance company can attempt to deny your entire claim for compensation.
