    에 2020, it found the world’s ten costliest weather disasters caused £112 billion in damage, making this year’s total an increase of 13 퍼센트.

    Christian Aid said the upward trend reflected the effects of man-made climate change and added that the ten disasters in question also killed at least 1,075 people and displaced 1.3 백만.

    The most expensive disaster in 2021 was hurricane Ida, which lashed the eastern United States and caused around $65 billion in damages. After crashing into Louisiana at the end of August, it made its way northward and caused extensive flooding in New York City and the surrounding area.

    Other disasters costing several billion dollars include flooding in Canada, a late spring freeze in France that damaged vineyards, and a cyclone in India and Bangladesh in May.

    The report acknowledged its evaluation mainly covered disasters in countries where infrastructure was better insured and that the financial toll of disasters on poor countries was often incalculable.
