Insurers have paid about $1.13 billion in claims from May’s Joplin tornado, and they’re not done. The head of the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration says total insured losses could be $1.8 billion to $1.9 billion. John Huff called the tornado the “largest insurance event in Missouri history.” The numbers don’t reflect uninsured losses or properties that are under insured. Estimates are that 40% of the homes in some parts of the tornado zone in Joplin were either uninsured or under insured. The twister damaged 7,500 homes and business, and killed 161-people.
