LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Florida had among the highest foreclosure filing ratings in the country last month.
Other states high on the list were Nevada, California and Ohio. That's according to figures released today.
U.S. foreclosure filings nearly doubled in October from the same month last year. It's the latest sign many homeowners are falling behind on mortgage payments and increasingly losing their homes.
While the number of filings is up year-over-year, it has leveled off in the last two months after hitting a high for the year in August.
