Greenberg, et al (n.d.) added that in areas affected by catastrophe "estimating local impacts is the first priority. If we cannot measure these most obvious impacts, it is difficult to envision credible analyses of the effects outside the immediate impact area".
Licensing agencies of the government will be a good source of the actual cost of infrastructures in the area. Of course, a credible assessment team is also a factor in measuring the financial cost of a catastrophe.
This solution provides an overview of the methods for quantifying the financial cost of catastrophic incidents. Additionally, this solution includes an attached guide to calculating the financial cost of a disastrous event. The solution also includes three reference sources for further research on the topic.
