Louisiana Issues Hurricane Zeta Data Call

November 19, 2020

Louisiana is seeking information from property/casualty insurers in the state about the impact of Hurricane Zeta.

This latest data call from the Louisiana Department of Insurance is the third hurricane-related data call this year. The department said insurers must submit data separately for hurricanes Delta, Laura and Zeta.

Bulletin 2020-05 contains guidance on Zeta reporting requirements. All authorized property and casualty insurers, including insurers that write private and/or excess flood insurance coverage and surplus lines insurers, are required to respond.

Only claims relating to Hurricane Zeta for Louisiana policies should be reported; non-catastrophe claims should be excluded. The first report is due Jan. 8, 2021, for claims reported as of Dec. 31, 2020.

Zeta was the fifth hurricane to make landfall in Louisiana during this extraordinary hurricane season. It made landfall near Cocodrie, Louisiana, in Terrebonne Parish as a strong Category 2 storm with a maximum sustained surface wind speed of 110 miles per hour before directly hitting New Orleans on Oct. 28. It hit the Louisiana coastline three weeks after Hurricane Delta and about nine weeks after Hurricane Laura. Zeta was the 27th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.

A copy of the data call spreadsheet template and instructions can be downloaded from the LDI’s website at www.ldi.la.gov/HurricaneZetaDataCall.

The timeline for submitting data for Hurricane Zeta is as follows:
