CAT Crews Busy Closing Out Hurricane Claims

 Wednesday, October 18, 2017


The relentless hurricane season is keeping Bloomington-based insurers busy. With seven weeks to go, the 2017 hurricane season is already the third most active on record. That’s led to tens of thousands of claims worth hundreds of millions of dollars for State Farm Insurance and Country Financial, the companies said Friday. Hurricane Harvey, which killed 77 people and flooded much of Houston in late August, has led to 39,420 auto claims totaling $426.8 million at State Farm, a company spokesperson said. That was followed by Hurricane Irma, which killed more than 130 people in early September as it moved across the Atlantic and into Florida.
