“We continue to evaluate and reserve for this catastrophe using our knowledge and experience of reporting patterns from many past storms, in addition to actual claims reported and assumptions specific to this hurricane. As further described in our periodic reports filed with the SEC, these estimates will continue to change, and could change materially, favorably or unfavorably, as additional information develops, and additional claims are reported,” said the release.

After taking reinsurance into consideration, it is responsible for $200 million of the property-related costs — a number that did not change.

The Category 4 hurricane made landfall on Sept. 28 in Southwest Florida before crossing the state.
