(1) The risk categories are cumulative and increase in value from extreme to low. Extreme risk signals the higher risk of damage from a weak hurricane, while low risk includes up to Category 5 hurricanes that are the least likely to occur but will cause more storm surge damage inland. (2) The low-risk category refers to Category 5 hurricanes, which are not common along the northeastern Atlantic Coast. (3) Storm surge risk in the low category for homes on the northeastern Atlantic Coast is not shown due to the extremely low probability of a Category 5 storm affecting these areas. (4) Represents the cost to completely rebuild including labor and materials by geographic location. Source: CoreLogic, Inc., a data and analytics company.
