The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season broke all kinds of records this year, but the latest economic damage estimates don’t quite match the level of activity.

Early seasonal forecasts called for an “extremely active” season with 10 to 15 named storms. In the end, the 2020 hurricane season logged a record 30 storms, making it the most active season in recorded history.
