A recent increase in homeowner insurance rates in south Mississippi isn't being attributed to Hurricane Katrina.

Three major insurers -- Allstate, USAA, and Southern Farm Bureau -- filed for and received rate increases before Katrina struck on Aug. 29.

Consumers will see the increases when their policies renew.

State insurance commissioner George Dale said it's too early to say what effect Katrina will have on insurance rates across the board.
