Insurer: Total damage from European floods over $16 billion, costliest disaster in 1st half
from The Associated Press via Fox News
Munich Re AG, a leading insurance company, says the recent flooding in central Europe caused damage totaling more than $16 billion, about a quarter of it insured — making it costliest natural disaster in 2013 so far. Munich Re AG put insured losses from the flooding in Germany and several other countries at $3.9 billion. Both figures were similar to the damage caused by floods in 2002 that hit some of the same areas.
