Ice storm facts

The Carolinas and Georgia are heading into ice storm season. According to the Southeast Regional Climate Center, monetary losses due to catastrophic winter storms in the Southeast region of the U.S. have been found to be comparable to losses from Northeast winter storms, despite the fact that the Southeast experiences far fewer events.

Using insurance claim data, the Southeast Regional Climate Center found that the total insured loss from winter storms in the Southeast between 1949 and 2003 was $6.6 billion, with 62 storms amassing at least $1 million each in damage.

That is not good news if you are a home or business owner.
