MUNICH (Reuters) - The devastating floods in western Germany this week could become one of the most expensive natural catastrophes in the country in the past 20 years, past industry data shows.

German insurance industry association GDV plans to give its first estimate of the damage next week. The overall damage could be considerably higher than the insured damage as the industry says only around 45% of buildings are insured against floods and heavy rain.

Here is a rundown of the most expensive natural catastrophes in Germany since 2002 (insured damage in property and casualty as well as auto insurance):

Event Date insured damage*

August floods, among August 2002 4.5 bln euros

other at the Oder

river

Storm Kyrill January 2007 3.4 bln euros

Hailstorms Andreas July 2013 3.1 bln euros

and Bernd

June floods, among June 2013 2.1 bln euros

Hailstorm Hilal May 2008 1.3 bln euros

Storm Friederike January 2018 1.15 bln euros

* in 2019 prices

** according to preliminary estimates

And here is a rundown of the most expensive natural catastrophe years since 1973 (insured damage in property and casualty as well as auto insurance):
