Just out from the Dallas Fed. Fortunately the hurricane season is over - for economics does not come much drier or more detached than this:

"Our results show that the typical hurricane strike raises real house prices for a number of years, with a maximum effect of between 3 to 4 % three years after occurrence. There is also a small negative effect on real incomes. These results are stable across models and sub-samples."

Course, your house has to survive the general inventory destruction reduction (and certain other "negative" effects) for this to happen.
