More than 48,000 homes, 48,617 exactly, in Hawaii are at extreme-to-very high risk of hurricane-driven flood damage from approaching Hurricane Lane, according to analytic provider CoreLogic. The estimated total reconstruction cost value (RCV) is set at approximately $8 billion even though the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts the hurricane will continue to weaken as it approaches the islands.

The table shows the total number of properties at risk for all levels of flood damage—from extreme to very low depending on storm size and path—as well as their accompanying RCV totals for the four most populated Hawaiian Islands that could potentially be affected. Due to Hurricane Lane’s weakening projections, the “Extreme” and “Very High Risk” totals are most representative of damage potential.
