Northland in New Zealand is facing a billion-dollar recovery following the impact of Cyclone Gabrielle. The estimated cost includes half a billion dollars for rebuilding infrastructure and the same amount for the region’s economy. Northland has already seen $50 million worth of insurance claims related to the cyclone. The storm caused significant damage to roads and state highways, as well as impacting the region’s agriculture industry, with the kumara crop suffering losses. The recovery efforts are focused on rebuilding infrastructure with improved resilience to extreme weather events.
