Fla. Insurer Activates Mobile Claims Center in Pensacola

October 19, 2007

Citizens Property Insurance Corp. opened a mobile claims center in Pensacola today to help policyholders with property damaged by tornadoes that ripped through the area, a Citizens official said.

“We opened the center this morning (Friday) and had 18 claims reported by 8 a.m.,” said Rick Larson, director of catastrophe operations.

The center is located at Pensacola’s Cordova Mall on North Ninth Avenue.

Citizens personnel and the mobile response center were sent to Pensacola after a strong line of thunderstorms struck the area Thursday. Larson said an initial damage survey showed trees uprooted and roof damage to a number of buildings.

There was no immediate estimate of the number of structures damaged. Citizens has a total of about 5,800 policies in Pensacola and Escambia County.

Larson said the mobile center will be open at least through Oct. 21.
