Five years after Hurricane Wilma whipped through South Florida, the insurance industry is still picking up the pieces:
• Claims for Wilma continue to trickle in this year, for damage homeowners say they have just discovered from a five-years-ago storm.
• Several insurance companies have collapsed and those left standing are raising rates.
• The state's largest private insurer tried to abandon Florida and only remains here in exchange for dropping 125,000 policyholders and increasing premium prices.
• State-run insurer Citizens Property Insurance is growing larger.
• Sinkholes, labeled by some as a scourge nearly as big as mold, are being blamed as the source of more claims than ever, including well outside the state's ``sinkhole alley'' in Central Florida.
• Public adjusters -- who work for consumers who may be having trouble getting help from their insurers -- are driving up costs and filing questionable claims. More here.
