Indiana Tops All States in Insurance Claims


A new study shows the Hoosier state led the nation in catastrophic insurance claims last year.

Indiana saw $1.5 billion dollars worth of insurance claims in 2006.

A wave of storms in the spring and the relative lack of major hurricanes helped nudge Indiana to the top of the list.

Insurance companies saw nearly 335,000 claims just from Indiana because of this year's storms.

The 2006 numbers contrast sharply to those from 2005 when hurricanes Katrina and Rita put Louisiana on top of the list with $27.2 billion in damages.
