Operation Recovery & Redevelopment Update

Adjusters started working in grids 3 & 4 of Plaquemines and St. Bernard Parishes in early November and the Louisiana Insurance Department said that all reports indicate that property adjustments in the grids are moving along very well. Some companies have been able to move into other areas of the parishes as well as the assigned grids.

Insurance Commissioners from Louisiana, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, were scheduled to be in Washington, D.C., November 9th to testify before the House Financial Services Committee. The Commissioners were expected to discussing the department's response to the natural disaster and the need for long-range planning for future disasters.

Separately, in Louisiana, Governor Gov. Kathleen Blanco called a special session of the Legislature to examine a number of issues relating to the recent events.
