State regulators have received notice of more than 335,000 insurance claims since Hurricane Irma hit Florida, mostly concentrated in Central and South Florida, with losses nearing $2 billion.
The data were based on claims information provided by insurers, and the office had yet to audit or verify the figures.
Thirteen counties accounted for more than 10,000 claims each. They included Broward, Collier, Lee, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach. Monroe County, although hard hit, posted between 5,001 and 10,000 claims.
In Central Florida, the bulk of the claims came from Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, and Volusia counties. Highlands, Hillsborough, and Pinellas counties reported between 5,001 and 10,000 claims.
In North Florida, Duval County also reported more than 10,000 claims.
Meanwhile, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. said it had received 27,970 claims as of 9 a.m. Monday.
Statewide, insurers had already paid off 9,420 claims involving residential, commercial, private flood, business interruption, and other lines, the insurance office said.
