LOSSES: Palm trees bend in the winds of Hurricane Wilma as the storm makes landfall in Plantation in October 2005. Hurricane Wilma knocked down trees and power lines and flooding low-lying areas on a path to the Atlantic Ocean. The storm caused billions in damages in insured damages, more than any of the four storms to hit the state in 2005. A new federal audit shows the Federal Emergency Management Agency may have paid for damages that a private insurer should have covered.
