Hurricane Sandy's overall toll on the economy could be as high as $20 billion, according to estimates released before the storm, with traditional insurers on the hook for about $5 billion to $10 billion of damage. That would make the storm more devastating than last year's Hurricane Irene in dollar terms, but not nearly as bad as Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
