Progressive reports monthly results so this is the earliest estimate that could shed some light on GEICO's Sandy losses:

During October, we incurred catastrophe losses of about $55 million, or 3.5 loss ratio points, related to Superstorm Sandy, compared to catastrophe losses of $6 million, or 0.4 points, in October 2011. New York and New Jersey accounted for nearly 80% of the total losses for the month. Year-to-date, we have incurred about $230 million, or 1.7 points, of catastrophe losses, compared to $204 million, or 1.6 points, last year.

I am not sure exactly how Progressive and GEICO's market shares compare in the heavily impacted states. I may look into that later.
