Supplementary notes

According to the source, only property coverage for catastrophic fires are shown. Effective January 1, 1997, Property Claim Services (PCS) unit defines catastrophes as events that cause more than 25 million U.S. dollars in insured property damage and that affect a significant number of insureds and insurers. From 1982 to 1996, PCS used a 5 million U.S. dollars threshold in defining catastrophes.
Data are adjusted for inflation through 2019 by ISO using the GDP implicit price deflator.
*Estimates are preliminary as the fires are still under investigation and the severity of losses may change. In these cases the upper estimate for losses was used.
The date of access was taken as the release date.
