Losses from deadly flooding in Colorado estimated at $2 billion

Total cost of property losses from deadly flooding in Colorado is estimated at about $2 billion, according to the catastrophe modeling company Eqecat, said a report.

The projected losses for residential property are estimated at about $900 million, while “$1 billion is attributed to losses projected for commercial and government property, including roads and bridges, Eqecat senior vice president Tom Larsen told Reuters.”

The disaster zone encompasses 17 Colorado counties, as the historic deluge, called a 500-to-1,000-year flood, destroyed or damaged ten of thousands of properties.

The full extent of property losses and damage in Boulder County has not yet been revealed.
