Top 10 costliest natural disasters in 2022

natural disastersThe British organization Christian Aid has published its annual ranking of the ten most costly natural catastrophes in 2022.

According to the study, the damages caused by meteorological events could cost insurers more than 168 billion USD (excluding the US winter storm in late December 2022).

The report only addresses the amount of insured losses, which means that the actual economic costs are likely to be much higher.

The December 2022 US winter storm could further burden the entire insurance market.
