PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Are you one of the many still battling with insurance over your hurricane-related claims?

Florida's Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis will be hosting a Hurricane Michael insurance village at Gulf Coast State College this weekend.

The CFO will be bringing together between twelve and fifteen insurance companies in order for claimants to meet face-to-face with their insurers.

"And we'll be cutting checks. The insurance companies, we did one [insurance village] back in May, there was literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in checks that were cut as claims were closed because the claims process can be overwhelming," said Patronis.
The event will be held Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Patronis says attendees should bring a driver's license, identification, and anything relevant to your policy.
