Thunderstorms -- including losses from damage caused by hail, wind and tornadoes -- have surpassed hurricanes as the costliest peril for the insurance industry in the U.S. over the past decade, said Steve Bowen, director and meteorologist of Aon Benfield's impact forecasting division. Fewer hurricanes have been making landfall, but thunderstorms have become increasingly damaging. "While the individual losses themselves may not be as costly as hurricanes, it's sort of death by a million paper cuts," Bowen said. "You get all of these events that add up." Every year since 2008, the insurance industry has paid out at least $10 billion for damages from thunderstorms in the U.S., according to Aon Benfield data. The costliest year during that period was 2011, when the bill topped $29 billion. The total is already nearing $5 billion this year, up from $4.8 billion through March of last year. The heart of severe weather season hasn't even hit yet, Bowen said. "May is usually the peak month when it comes to tornadoes." The onslaught of severe thunderstorms raining down on the nation doesn't necessarily mean higher premiums for customers, said Michael Barry, a spokesman for the New York-based Insurance Information Institute, an industry trade group. Rates are based on actual and anticipated losses an insurer is going to see in each state, Barry said.
