 Friday, June 7, 2013


According to this year’s analysis by CoreLogic, more than 4.2 million homes along the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf coasts are located within storm-surge risk zones, totaling more than $1.1 trillion in property exposure. The CoreLogic Storm Surge Report, issued annually, provides a breakdown of residential property risk along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts at five key geographic levels — national, regional, state, metro and ZIP code. The 2013 findings reflect a significant increase in both the number of total properties at risk, as well as total value.
