Alabamians have filed an estimated 65,000 insurance claims related to last week’s storms, according to Governor Robert Bentley and Insurance Commissioner Jim Ridling. The Alabama Department of Insurance developed the estimate from claim counts provided by various insurers. “This is clearly the first wave of claims,” Governor Robert Bentley said. “In our meeting with the larger insurers on Wednesday, we were assured that the companies were making every effort to find their policyholders in order to expedite the claims process and keep the promises they’ve made to Alabama citizens.
