An attorney for Mississippi Gulf Coast residents who lost homes to Hurricane Katrina said Tuesday that e-mail between executives in a North Carolina firm shows how insurance companies pressured disaster engineers to attribute the destruction to flooding.

In the e-mail, Randy Down, vice president of engineering for Forensic Analysis and Engineering Corp., expressed “serious concern about the ethics” of demands from State Farm Fire and Casualty that a property be reinspected after an engineer with the company found high winds were the primary cause of the home’s destruction.
