(WBAP 24/7 News) - Damage from tornadoes that struck Cleburne, Granbury and surrounding communities in North and Central Texas last week could cost $250 million in losses, according to an insurance industry group.
The estimate for the storms, which killed six people in Granbury, is still rough, cautioned Mark Hanna, a spokesman with the Insurance Council of Texas.
His group is gathering reports from insurance companies on auto and homeowner claims and media reports of damage.
In the Rancho Brazos neighborhood near Granbury, where the most powerful tornadoes hit, officials said 97 of the 110 homes suffered at least some damage.
Since the May 15 storms, insurers have mobilized adjusters, claims specialists and others who specialize in dealing with catastrophes. They have already received several thousand auto and homeowner claims.
