Of the 203 weather and climate events that exceeded $US 1 billion since 1980 in the United States, 15 occurred in 2016. Four of these billion dollar events were inland floods. These loss estimates reflect direct effects of weather and climate events i.e., not including indirect effects such as subsequent loss of tourism or missed work by employees or losses to natural capital/assets, healthcare related losses, or values associated with loss of life.
