State regulators say the 335,000 insurance claims filed by Hurricane Irma victims already outstrip the two storms that blasted Florida last year.
So far, Irma claims total $1.9 billion in property losses, according to the Office of Insurance Regulation. Hurricane Matthew’s 119 thousand claims totaled $1.2 billion in losses.
Hurricane Hermine left insurance companies juggling nearly 20,000 claims totaling $139 million in losses.
Irma claims are heaviest in Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Collier and Lee counties.
