The storm system that produced deadly tornadoes this past week, including the one that leveled Moore, Okla., is expected to cause between $2 billion and $5 billion in insured property losses, according to catastrophe modeler Eqecat. 

The Moore tornado caused the bulk of the expected losses, Eqecat says, destroying approximately 13,000 structures.
