Insured losses from Hurricane Henri, which hit the northeastern United States earlier this week, will be close to $ 155 million, said disaster model Karen Clark & Co. Wednesday.
Estimates include privately insured damage to residential, commercial and industrial properties and cars
Henri was the third hurricane during hurricane season 2021 in the Atlantic, although it deteriorated to a tropical storm before landing on August 22 near Westerly, Rhode Island , with a maximum of 60 mph sustained wind.
Much of the wind-related damage that occurred in the affected areas was a result of fallen trees and power lines, the Boston-based KCC said in its report on the storm.
The slow motion of the storm over the region caused heavy rainfall from northern New Jersey to southern New England.
Total precipitation exceeded nine inches in Brooklyn, New York and Middlesex County, New Jersey, overwhelming drainage systems and waterways. Floodwater flooded homes, businesses and roads and submerged vehicles in several New Jersey counties.
Henri was the first named storm to land in Rhode Island since Hurricane Bob in 1
