According to CoreLogic’s recently released 2021 Climate Change Disaster Report, more than 14.5 million U.S. homes, or one in ten U.S. settlements, have been affected by typhoons, wildfires, hurricanes, or adverse weather conditions by 2021.

Wildfires

According to the CoreLogic report, there was $ 1.46 billion in property damage caused by wildfires, affecting 4,100 buildings in 2021.

Amid prolonged dry conditions and extreme temperatures, the number of annual wildfires is on the rise – and 2021 is the same. The Dixie Fire has become the second-largest forest fire in California history, burning millions of acres and more than 1,200 buildings on its way. The surrounding houses have been damaged and are still recovering from heavy smoke and ash damage.

Severe Weather

In 2021, severe weather caused $ 7.46 billion in damage to U.S. property.

Every year, hundreds of hurricanes, tornadoes, and hurricanes occur across the United States. At the end of the year due to severe storm damage, the Midwest hurricane that occurred on December 10 and 11, 2021 was the deadliest in December.

Hurricanes

The storms caused $ 33 billion in property damage in 2021 affecting 1,233,000 homes.

With climate change affecting sea temperature, the occurrence of a tropical storm is expected to increase and destroy. When Hurricane Ida collapsed under Hurricane Katrina 16, many Louisiana residents were looking forward to it. IDA has indicated that two things have changed since Katrina’s death – bed bugs and flood insurance have fallen. After the storm hit the northeastern United States, a flood was known to hit the Gulf Coast hurricane.

Winter Storms

Heavy snowstorms in 2021 caused $ 15 billion in property damage that affected more than 12,330 homes.

Covering walls and ceilings, high levels of windows, and reducing the display of the pipe by the lowering and lowering of the pipe in the exterior walls all contribute to the construction of sturdy houses. To their detriment, not all homes in the affected area by the winter of 2021 in the Central United States have complied with these regulations.
