Hurricane season bears down — with 7 million homes at risk and a flood insurance program set to expire

If the start of summer has you trying to reason with hurricane season, you’re not alone. Millions of homes across the U.S. sit in harm’s way, and the resulting damage could be in the trillions of dollars, according to a report out Thursday.

Those estimates come from real-estate data provider CoreLogic, and are based on forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that expect the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season to be “near- or above-normal.”
