The Atlantic Hurricane season was not only the most active hurricane season on record, but it was also within the top 10 costliest seasons as well, coming in at number 7. According to the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), the records date back to about 1851, and 2020 has now dethroned 2005 as the busiest year for storms.
By the end of November, there were a total of 30 named storms with 12 of those making landfall.
The Insurance Information Institute lists a breakdown of the many storms in this season, their impacts, and approximately what they have cost. Total estimates for the year for damages regarding this storm season go as high as $41 Billion!

However, damages from storms such as Isaias and Eta especially have caused damage to the state. Depending on where you live, you may also have faced storm surge and damages from many of the tropical storms that have skirted by the coast in the past year such as Hurricane Delta or Sally which hammered the panhandle of Florida.
