Business and Commercial Hurricane Insurance Claims
Hurricane Ike barreled through portions of southeast Texas in September of 2008. To date, it was the costliest storm of its kind on record, causing $37.5 billion in damage. City street lights were damaged or destroyed, causing traffic delays for several days after the storm passed. Flights in and out of the Houston airport were cancelled and even when service was restored, it was on a limited basis. Hurricane Ike even affected our beloved Houston Astros’ chase for a playoff spot that year, delaying two of their games against the Chicago Cubs.
Buildings in downtown Houston were shattered, one of which was the JP Morgan Chase Tower Building. Windows were shattered and witnesses reported furniture being flung from the building into a parking garage across the street. Reliant Stadium’s roof went missing and power outages were a problem throughout the city. Brennan’s restaurant experienced a fire, the Houston Theater District flooded, and bus stop shelters were destroyed.
