Hurricane Dorian is one of the Atlantic disturbances – losses 25 billion dollars

The Hurricane Dorian, the strongest hurricane in the Bahamas, has caused major damages in the area during the weekend.  Over 13.000 homes are being destroyed after the hurricane hit the islands.

According to US National Weather Service, the Atlantic is also having other disturbances at the same time. According to their tweet:

“While the focus has understandably been on Hurricane Dorian, the entire tropical Atlantic basin has become quite active. There are currently 3 disturbances being monitored for potential development, with another tropical wave expected to move off the African coast later this week, the National Weather Service organisation said on Monday evening.

The strong winds have decreased from the Bahamas somewhat, but the US states Florida, Georgia and South Carolina have now issued emergency and mandatory evacuations. Schools and governments are expected to be closed on Tuesday and many flights have been cancelled in the US coastal cities.  The Disney park has cancelled some events and some parks are closed. The Hurricane Dorian is not expected to land in Florida according to the NOOA information on Monday.

According to Bloomberg News, the Dorian is estimated to increase the losses of insurance companies by 25 billion dollars. This UBS estimate says that the losses could widen up to 40 billion dollars, if there would be Florida coastal damages.
