The fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina gives us all pause for thought. Katrina was the costliest hurricane, as well as one of the deadliest, in U.S. history.

Here’s a look at the storm by some of the numbers (sourced from the I.I.I. white paper: Hurricane Katrina: The Five Year Anniversary):

  August 29, 2005: the day Hurricane Katrina made its second U.S. landfall as a Category 3 storm in southeast Louisiana.

  1,300-1,500: the estimated number of people who lost their lives as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

 $41.1 billion: the amount private sector insurers paid out to policyholders for insured losses across six states.

 1.7 million: the number of auto, home and business claims received by insurers.

 $16.1 billion: what the federal government’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) paid out in flood insurance claims from Katrina.

 $2-$3 billion: the amount private sector insurers paid out in damages to offshore energy facilities.

 99 percent: the proportion of the 1.2 million personal property claims settled by the second anniversary of the disaster.

 Fewer than 2 percent: the share of Katrina homeowners claims in Louisiana and Mississippi that were disputed either through mediation or litigation.
