AIR is reporting 65,000 claims reported thus far in Alabama as a result of the April 2011 tornado damage with an estimated 3.7 to 5.5B in damages according to this  PropertyCasualty360 report. There is also a May 6, 2011 Press Release from the Alabama Department of insurance verifying these numbers and indicating that 2,000 adjusters had already arrived in their state with more expeced.

The comments made by Jim Loveland, President and CEO of Xactware Solutions  in this April 28, 2011 CEO  blog also indicate access to XactAnalysis is up to an all time high record up 60% over 2010 numbers due to the April storms. View his complete blog post here.

Missouri Insurance Regulators are quoted as stating 7,000 homeowner and auto claims had been filed as of May 2, 2011 as a result of the tornado in St Louis, MO in this article which provides a breakdown on the claims reported there.

One of the most interesting updates on the tornado damage is found in this May 9, 2011 report by NOAA updating the April 2011 tornado and fatality numbers. You will also find this Huffington Post article excellent as far as providing historical information on US history and indicating these twisters were the 2nd deadliest in US history.

We were not able to locate numbers on the TN claims and MS claims but will update the blog as numbers come in.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the adjusters working these claims full of emotional issues for homeowners and residents who have suffered severe damage and loss of life in their communities and families.
