How Much Did Hurricane Allen Cost?

Hurricane Allen cost an actual $2.6 billion USD in 1980 when it struck. That would actually be the equivalent of $6.9 billion now in 2009! Hurricane Allen was the 5th and strongest hurricane of the season in 1980 as a category 5 hurricane, and is STILL in the top 10 strongest recorded hurricanes! I found a great website with lots of information on it
