LONDON (Reuters) - Analytics firm Corelogic (CLGX.N) raised its estimate for insured property losses for wind and storm surge from Tropical Storm Harvey to $1.5-3 billion, it said on Wednesday.

    Corelogic’s previous estimate, made last week, was for insured property losses of $1-2 billion.

    The latest estimate, like the earlier estimate, does not include flood losses, a Corelogic spokeswoman said by email, adding that flood losses were “difficult to estimate at this point since the rain continues to fall”.
