NEW: Hurricane Irma generates more than 335,000 claims in first week

Hurricane Irma has produced more than 335,000 insurance claims in a week, according to figures state regulators released Monday.

That includes more than 10,000 in Palm Beach County.

Estimated insured losses statewide so far are just under $2 billion.

The numbers will grow. Some residents are only now returning to their homes, and homeowners with damage from Irma have an additional 90 days to submit information on claims under emergency orders from state officials.

State officials emphasize this data is preliminary.

State-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp. expects about 125,000 claims from its customers. It has the second-highest number of policies statewide, about 450,000.
