Allstate provides update on pending October catastrophe loss estimate The Allstate Corporation announced that estimated catastrophe losses for the month of October will exceed $150M, but an estimate cannot be made at this time. The company's practice is to release an estimate of monthly catastrophe losses on the third Thursday following month-end when the amount exceeds $150M. Allstate will issue a catastrophe loss estimate for October when losses from Sandy can be estimated.
