PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - For thousands of Bay County residents, insurance claims after Hurricane Michael are causing headaches.

That's why Florida's Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis hosted another two-day insurance village.

It was held at the Florida State University campus in Panama City.

Twenty-four different insurance groups were there, plus government agencies were there to help people navigate through the settlement process.

"We've seen over 200 policy holders and we've cut 1.2 million dollars in checks," said Patronis.

This was the sixth insurance village.

Patronis says they will keep holding these until everyone gets settled.

"We're trying to hold people's hands and walk them through the claims process and if they've got a problem with their contractor, they've got a problem with their public adjuster, if they've got a problem with their attorney, we've got just about anybody and everybody here that can, you know, help them find a pathway to resolution," said Patronis
