In preparation for a surge of claims following Hurricane Harvey, insurance companies are staging employees throughout Texas. The National Hurricane Center said that some portions of the state could see as much as 35 inches of rain. The hurricane has been classified as a Category 2 storm. State Farm is assigning some of its insurance adjusters from across the country to Irving and Austin, where they will stay until the storm passes. The adjusters will then move to the coast to assist residents affected by the hurricane.
“We’re getting close so we’ll be just a few hours away once it’s safe to enter the area,” State Farm spokesperson Chris Pilcic told Houston Chronicle.
