Are hurricanes bad for the economy?

Wondering how the country's economy is doing after all this disaster? Who knows? There's a different story depending where you look. I found this and that . There's more than two sides to this story - it depends on who and where you are. Displaced? Unemployed? Everything you own destroyed? Wrong place at the wrong time. Own energy stock? Work for a reconstruction company? Don't live in the south? Could be good. How do individual people's economic state add up to a country's economic state? I'm not an economist. I hope that people remember when they are breathing their sigh of relief that a hurricane victim still needs help getting their life going again.
