The III’s Michael Barry briefs our membership every week on key insurance related stories. Here are some highlights:
- Eight people were killed in lower Manhattan, and scores were injured, when a 29-year-old man drove a van down a bicycle path in what is now widely considered a terrorist attack.
- FEMA is still paying for more than 60,000-plus Texans to live in hotels in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall on Aug. 25, according to The Wall Street Journal.
- Florida’s Office of Insurance Regulation says insured claim payouts arising out of Hurricane Irma statewide now stand at $5.3 billion.
