Disaster statistics in New Orleans

May 2017 - A period of heavy rainfall up to 15 inches over a multi-state region in the Midwest caused historic levels of flooding along many rivers. The flooding was most severe in Missouri, Arkansas and southern Illinois where levees were breached and towns were flooded. There was widespread damage to homes, businesses, infrastructure and agriculture. Severe storms also caused additional impacts during the flooding event across a number of central and southern states.

August 2016 - A historic flood devastated a large area of southern Louisiana resulting from 20 to 30 inches of rainfall over several days. Watson, Louisiana received an astounding 31.39 inches of rain from the storm. Two-day rainfall totals in the hardest hit areas have a 0.2% chance of occurring in any given year: a 1 in 500 year event. More than 30,000 people were rescued from the floodwaters that damaged or destroyed over 50,000 homes, 100,000 vehicles and 20,000 businesses. This is the most damaging U.S. flood event since Superstorm Sandy impacted the Northeast in 2012.

March 2016 - Multiple days of heavy rainfall averaging 15 to 20 inches led to widespread flooding along the Sabine River basin on the Texas and Louisiana border. This prompted numerous evacuations, high-water rescues and destruction, as more than 1,000 homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed.

Fires in the U.S.

Households can expect to average a home fire every 15 years or five fires in an average lifetime. (Life expectancy now averages 78 years in the U.S., according to the Statistical Abstract.) That is one of the results of the latest survey of unreported fires, conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, when combined with NFPA’s annual tracking of reported fires.

Each year there are more than 1,300,000 fires reported in the United States. These fires caused $10.6 billion in property damage. 475,500 were structure fires causing $7.9 billion in property damage.

The U.S. fire loss clock a fire department responds to a fire every 24 seconds. One structure fire was reported every 66 seconds.

Weather Related Damages in the U.S.

During last years weather-related damages reached $18,438 billion. Property damages were estimated at $18,195 billion. The most costly weather culprit for property owners was again floods, which caused $10.7 billion in damages, followed again by hail ($3.5 billion) and this year by tropical storms, ($3.1 billion). Crop damages totaled about $243 million per year. Once again, flooding caused the most crop damage, accounting for $199 million. Louisiana accured the most in damages in last years, $9.2 billion in losses, mostly from flooding.
