Miami Herald–August 21, 2008

Citizens Property Insurance, the state-run insurer, closed its mobile claims center in Naples and will send it to Jacksonville. The insurer has received 518 claims so far, with 29 claims coming from a mobile park in Brevard County that was hit by a tornado Tuesday.

Citizens, Florida’s largest insurer, has 375 adjusters trained to deal with Tropical Storm Fay.

As long as there’s a storm watch or warning issued for any portion of the state, Citizens and most private insurers won’t write new coverage or expand existing policies.
