Federal officials have agreed to give National Flood Insurance Program policyholders until Jan. 31, 2017 to file claims associated with Hurricane Hermine.
The storm, the first hurricane to make landfall in Florida in 11 years, landed as a Category 1 storm south of Tallahassee in early September but caused limited damage more broadly across the state.
Hermine produced about 1,686 federal flood insurance claims, according to a state website. More than 19,000 Hermine claims of all types in Florida are expected to cost more than $147 million. These included less than 200 claims in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties.
