It’s a fact: Natural catastrophes are increasing in severity and frequency. The insured damage from all natural disasters in the United States in Q1 2017 is estimated at nearly $7 billion, according Aon Benfield. Of that, about $6 billion is from severe storms. Disaster losses along the East Coast are projected to escalate in the coming years, in part because of spikes in building and property development.
