My appologies if this is a duplicate post.  I provided the information a
couple of weeks ago, but some individuals I have talked with indicated they
did not see it.  So, I'll try again.

Since Loma Prieta, California has experienced 23 events which have led to
the provision of money to victims as either insurance pay-outs, loans, or
grants.  These numbers reflect only the money paid to private business and
home owners.  To include money paid to public entities, you could increase
the totals by 33% to 50% depending on the event.  I am still waiting for
insurance numbers for floods (from FEMA) and fires.  Hopefully, in a few
weeks I will have the complete package.  For earthquakes, the data is
complete and covers 5 events including Loma Prieta.

I am providing simply the summary of totals.  My data is broken down by
event and specific program providing the funds.  The totals are
interesting.
