NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As Hurricane Isaias barrels towards the East and Southern Coast, states most affected by hurricane damage are right in its path. In the last decade Florida, North Carolina, and Texas are some of the top states that incur the most damage from hurricanes and natural disasters.

  • Florida experienced the most expensive losses overall with $3.5 billion of damage, while Texas had the highest average damage per storm, with a typical loss exceeding $1 billion.
  • 628 cunties were declared disaster zones for damage resulting from hurricanes, and the majority of counties experienced more than one emergency.
  • North Carolina's Dare, Brunswick and Hyde counties each experienced 10 separate FEMA emergencies on account of hurricanes — the most of anyone county.
