Insured losses associated with the wind and coastal flooding from Hurricane Hermine will not exceed $400 million, according to estimates by catastrophe risk management firm RMS.
The figure takes into consideration property damage and business interruption caused by wind and coastal flooding to residential, commercial, industrial properties, and auto lines of business.
