The $4 billion superstorm is costing us everything
On Friday, a superstorm tore through the northern Great Plains.
The storm dumped torrential rain and wind and left many areas without power.
As of Thursday afternoon, the state of Texas had lost an estimated 10,000 homes and businesses.
On Saturday, there was an estimated 25,000 to 35,000 dead and 1.5 million displaced, according to the National Weather Service.
The storm dumped at least $3.5 billion in damage and killed at least 23 people.
There was an additional $3 billion in property damage, according the National Hurricane Center.
The National Weather Agency said there was another 1.2 million deaths in the U.S. in the storm.
In a statement, the storm’s death toll was “unprecedented” and the storm caused an estimated $2.7 billion in economic losses.
“These are all the economic losses that are not accounted for by the federal disaster aid program that is available for the storm,” said the statement from Governor Greg Abbott.
“The loss of the homes and business is the most significant, and most devastating, of these losses.”ABC News’ Brian Faler contributed to this report.ABC News (Merritt Island, Florida) is an ABC News network serving viewers in the Greater Miami area.
