Katrina may cost insurers $30 bln, forecaster says

Quote From Source:

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hurricane Katrina may cost U.S. insurers more than $30 billion, which would make the storm the most expensive to hit the United States, a storm modeler said.

Eqecat Inc. of Oakland, California, preliminarily estimated insured losses at a minimum of $15 billion, based on a potential landfall south of New Orleans in Lafourche or Plaquemines parishes. The storm surge was expected to increase tidal heights by as much as 28 feet in some areas.

Katrina made landfall at 7:10 a.m. EDT (1110 GMT) in southern Plaquemines parish in Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, with maximum sustained winds at 140 miles per hour (225 kph), according to the National Hurricane Center.
