Insurers ache for qualified inspectors after U.S. hurricanes

(Reuters) - Insurers are scrambling to find inspectors in Texas and Florida after fierce hurricanes battered the states one after the other, causing tens of billions of dollars' worth of property damage in less than two weeks.


Although insurers maintain some number of inspectors, known as claims adjusters, across the U.S. year-round, they must redeploy staff from other areas or hire contract workers to fill gaps when catastrophes like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma strike. The speed with which they can do so is critical to residents and business owners awaiting insurance payments.

Expecting 100,000 Hurricane Irma claims, Citizens approves extra adjusters, rules waiver

Expecting Hurricane Irma to generate 100,000 claims, Citizens Property Insurance Corp.’s governing board on Wednesday suspended normal contracting procedures so the company can pay more to hire additional claims adjusters.


With Irma projected to make landfall in South Florida sometime Sunday, Citizens is concerned about its ability to compete with private insurers here and in Texas for independent adjusters.

The company expects to begin deploying adjusters to evaluate Irma claims in Florida beginning Wednesday.

Extended Range Forecast Of Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Activity And Landfall Strike Probability For 2017

Extended Range Forecast Of Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Activity And Landfall Strike Probability For 2017

June 1st Update

We have increased our forecast and now believe that 2017 will have approximately average activity. The odds of a significant El Niño in 2017 have diminished somewhat,
and portions of the tropical Atlantic have anomalously warmed over the past two months. While the tropical Atlantic is warmer than normal, the far North Atlantic remains colder than normal, potentially indicative of a negative phase of the Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation. We anticipate a near-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean. As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them. They should prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted.

Justices uphold Katrina fraud verdict against State Farm

Justices uphold Katrina fraud verdict against State Farm

 

"WASHINGTON — A unanimous Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a jury verdict that State Farm Fire and Casualty Co. committed fraud against the federal government after 2005’s Hurricane Katrina.

The justices on Tuesday rejected claims by State Farm that the whistleblower case against the insurer should have been dismissed because its existence was leaked while it was supposed to be secret.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the court in upholding an appellate ruling that there is no requirement in federal law that the lawsuit be dismissed.

Sisters Cori and Kerry Rigsby filed the fraud lawsuit on behalf of the government after they said they witnessed State Farm shifting Mississippi claims to federal flood insurance that should have been paid by private wind insurance."

ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE FORECAST FOR 2016

ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE FORECAST FOR 2016

ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE FORECAST FOR 2016
Forecast Parameter and 1981-2010
Issue Date 1 June 2016 - Updated 7/1

  • Information obtained through July 2016 indicates that the 2016 Atlantic hurricane
    season will have activity near the median 1981-2010 season. There remains considerable
    uncertainty with this forecast which we outline in the following paragraphs.
    We estimate that 2016 will have an additional 5 hurricanes (median is 6.5), 11
    named storms (median is 12.0), 50 named storm days (median is 60.1), 20 hurricane days
    (median is 21.3), 2 major (Category 3-4-5) hurricane (median is 2.0) and 4 major
    hurricane days (median is 3.9). The probability of U.S. major hurricane landfall is
    estimated to be about 95 percent of the long-period average. We expect Atlantic basin
    Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) and Net Tropical Cyclone (NTC) activity in 2016
    to be approximately 90 percent of their long-term averages for the remainder of the
    season.
