Even as the damage from Hurricanes #Harvey and #Irma is still being tallied, a preliminary assessment released last week by Black Knight Financial Services estimated that as many as 300,000 borrowers in the vicinity of #Houston could become delinquent on their loans and 160,000 could become seriously delinquent, or more than 90 days past due.
That number is roughly four times the original prediction because new #disasterzones were designated and more homes flooded when officials released water from reservoirs to protect dams, according to CNBC's Diana Olick. In total, the number of mortgaged properties in #Texas disaster zones is 1.18 million, with Black Knight adding that Houston disaster zones contain twice as many mortgaged properties than Katrina zones, with four times the unpaid principal balance.
Putting the #HurricaneHarvey damange in context, after #HurricaneKatrina mortgage delinquencies in #Louisiana and #Mississippi disaster areas spiked by 25%. The same could happen in Houston, as borrowers without flood insurance weigh their options and decide to walk away from the property. While they will get some federal relief, if rebuilding would cost more than the principal in their homes, they could decide to walk away according to Olick.
What about #HurricaneIrma?
According to a preliminary analysis by Black Knight released today, #Florida#FEMA-designated disaster areas related to Hurricane Irma include a whopping 3.1 million mortgaged properties. As Black Knight's EVP Ben Graboske explained, both the number of mortgages and the unpaid principal balances of those mortgages in FEMA-designated Irma disaster areas are significantly larger than in the areas impacted recently by Hurricane Harvey.
Quantifying the damage, Black Knight calculates that Irma-related disaster areas contain nearly three times as many mortgaged properties as those connected to Hurricane Harvey, and nearly seven times as many as those connected to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾

We just had a great question emailed to us...."How do I prepare for needed medication while away during a disaster?" Fema recommends to always keep a written copy of your prescriptions and orders for medical equipment and supplies with you, a list of all medications, equipment and supplies you use (including over-the-counter) and perhaps an electronic copy on a flash drive, even if you don’t use a computer. And, if you use prescription medications or consumable medical supplies, and can’t easily obtain an emergency supply, ask your insurance company to assist you in obtaining and maintaining enough medication and supplies to have on hand in case you must shelter in place unexpectedly.
If you are able to obtain an emergency supply, be sure to establish a plan for rotating your supply so it remains up-to-date. If you are unable to obtain an emergency supply, be sure to always fill prescriptions on the first day you become eligible for a refill, rather than waiting until the day you run out.
ATF Explosives Detection K-9 Jax from Detroit Field Division is helping out in Key West, Fla. in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. A group of special agents and K-9 Jax volunteered and traveled south to assist federal, state and local law enforcement partners with safety and security operations while Florida communities work to rebuild.
