Hurricane Laura, which was a category four hurricane and squarely struck Lake Charles last Wednesday did significant damage to homes in its path.
Another 3,180 auto insurance claims were made by State Farm policyholders in Louisiana as of Tuesday afternoon.
That’s a significant uptick from only 7,430 claims filed by State Farm policyholders the Friday after the storm.
Many homeowners were first tasked to secure their homes and begin adding tarps to the roof as fresh rain soaked Lake Charles after the hurricane for several days.
