Insurers Say South Carolina Storms Caused at Least $43M in Damage

March 26, 2008

Insurers say estimated damage in South Carolina from severe weather earlier this month has increased to $43 million.

The South Carolina Insurance News Service said Monday that more than 11,000 insurance claims had been reported as a result of the storms that moved through the state on March 15.

Officials say most of that damage was caused by hail and fallen trees.

Original damage estimates just after the storms were around $13 million. That number was later revised to around $30 million.

The National Weather Service confirmed at least 15 tornadoes in South Carolina two weekends ago.

No one was killed in South Carolina.
