Texas Hurricanes Down 50% Since The 1880’s

It has been more than six years since a hurricane hit Texas, but in 1884 Texas was hit by four hurricanes. The frequency of hurricane strikes in Texas has dropped by more than 50% since the 1880’s. No doubt insurance companies have reduced premiums to compensate.

    “No doubt insurance companies have reduced premiums to compensate.” I suggest you review the concept of expected loss.

    I like the regular pattern of the hurricane frequency. In 10 years or so, Texas will likely get a few hurricanes each season.
    Farmers and oil companies could plan for that.
