Sandy-Damaged Vehicles Hit 230,000 Mark

The losses from Sandy keep piling up. On Nov. 26, AIR Worldwide substantially raised its estimate of total insured losses to between $16 billion and $22 billion, while the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) revised its projections about the total number of vehicles swept away by Superstorm Sandy.

Based on claims information provided from the Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO), a subsidiary of Verisk Analytics, the NICB now estimates that at least 230,000 vehicles were damaged in the storm. Not surprisingly, New York logged the most damaged vehicles, with 130,000 claims. Meanwhile, New Jersey has reported 60,000 auto claims.
