Quake most expensive yet

Losses from the quake, tsunami and fires will total at least $100 billion, including $20 billion in damage to residences and $40 billion in damage to infrastructure such as roads, rail and port facilities, catastrophe modeling firm Eqecat estimated.

Another firm, AIR Worldwide, estimated that losses covered by insurance could reach between $15 billion and $35 billion from the earthquake alone. It did not estimate losses from the tsunami or the damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in northeastern Japan.

According to AIR, the number of Japanese businesses and homeowners with earthquake insurance is relatively low, ranging between 14% to 17%. As a result, the total financial toll for the catastrophe could be considerably higher than the estimate of insured losses.

Want Older Posts - or a Different Topic?

The above section lists a subset of all our blogs. Initially it is just the most recent ~20-25 blogs, but if you use widgets in the right column to specify a particular author, topic, starting date or other filtering criteria, the above display (and that on the home page) may reflect your choices.

If you just want older blogs, specify a different  starting date. If you want really old (circa 2005-2010) stories, see our archives from our previous site.

Subscribe for automatic delivery of these updates using RSS or Twitter using the tag VashonBPrepared - no 'e' to keep within the 15 character limit. These should automatically show up on our Facebook page too - but that's currently only works intermittently.

Other established VashonBePrepared volunteers can easily blog - contact der Tech Team to get set up.
