The insured losses could be between $25 billion and $40 billion by one early estimate

The full financial and human price of Hurricane Ian’s destruction is still unknown, days after it lashed Florida, and now with the Carolinas fresh off its wrath.

But even with the immediate search-and-rescue missions still happening, experts say there are already steps people can take to begin their long road to financial recovery.

By Sunday evening, the remnants of Ian were drifting north toward Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania after it made landfall again Friday afternoon near Georgetown, S.C. Back in Florida, about 700,000 people remained without power as of Sunday, whole areas of the state’s Gulf Coast are reeling and the death toll is climbing.

By Sunday, at least 68 people were confirmed dead, with 61 in Florida, the Associated Press reported.

Hurricane Ian is “likely to rank among the worst in the nation’s history,” President Joe Biden said Friday. “It’s going to take months, years to rebuild.”

Insurance losses could range from $25 billion to $40 billion, according to an early estimate from Fitch Ratings. The price could increase depending on what damage Ian inflicts in the Carolina, the ratings company noted.
