Travelers sees industry Q2 disaster losses over $10 billion

(Reuters) - The insurance industry appears to have lost more than $10 billion in the second quarter on natural disasters, substantially more than historical trends would suggest, executives of Travelers Cos Inc (TRV.N) said on Thursday.

    Travelers itself lost $357 million on natural disasters in the quarter, which Chief Executive Jay Fishman said would have been a more reasonable annual loss not that long ago.
