Colonial Insurance has received more than 175 claims for damage caused by Hurricane Humberto.

Juanita Coley, the firm’s claims manager, said: “We were accepting calls from 8.30am on Thursday, September 19, from clients whose property had been damaged.

“Our office opened at noon, once the roads were deemed safe for public access. Shortly after, our loss adjusters began assessing damaged properties.

“Claim payments began as early as Monday, September 23. Assessments are ongoing and the overall cost of damages is yet to be determined.

“The majority of our claims are in relation to property damage, most of which are located in the western end of the Island.”
