LAKE JACKSON — About 2,000 Brazoria County residents have filed claims with the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association for damages inflicted by Hurricane Nicholas, which struck the Texas Gulf Coast last month.

The county has the second-most claims related to the storm, accounting for about 35 percent, said Aaron Taylor, TWIA’s senior legislative and external affairs specialist. TWIA has seen 43 percent of the claims from Galveston County and 10 percent from Matagorda County, where Nicholas officially made landfall overnight Sept. 13.
