The Impact of Katrina on Louisiana Insurance Policy Holders

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, statistics emerged that put into perspective the burden and overall economic hit that the state of Louisiana took because of this horrific storm. According to the Louisiana Recovery Authority, nearly twice as many people from Louisiana were impacted than any of the other four states in Katrina, a storm that destroyed three times as many homes in Louisiana as any other state. Combined with the fact that ten times as many businesses were destroyed in Louisiana than in any other state and it is easy to see that the rebuilding effort by this state was truly an undertaking.

With all of the insurance claims and problems that resulted from Katrina, many home and property owners found extreme difficulty in getting the insurance company they deserved from their policy providers.
