Florida Storm Claims Soar into the Billions
Regulation (OIR) recently reported estimated insured losses related to Hurricane Irma have skyrocketed by more than $5 billion, according to an Insurance Business America article. Despite the surge, the OIR also reported that the number of filings and estimates have slowed down.
Interestingly, the majority of the claim filings are coming from Miami-Dade County followed by its neighbor Broward County in second place. Homeowners comprise over sixty percent of the state’s claims while another portion comes from other residential properties and owners of manufactured homes.
The Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund may have to shell out billions of dollars to cover the projected insured losses. However, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported that the catastrophe fund has enough cash to cover the losses and therefore would not need to borrow money.
