Floods In England, United Kingdom
Water or, too much of it, has been a problem in the United Kingdom.
In May 2007 in northern England and the Midlands it began to rain; and it kept on pouring. It caused extensive storm and flood damage.
In June 2007, the Association of British Insurers (www.abi.org.uk) estimated that some 27,500 residences and 7,000 businesses were flood affected. Media reports indicate that some 30,000 people had to evacuate their homes and some 3,500 people had to be rescued. The damage bill is reported to be in excess of AUD$3.5 billion. This extreme weather and the resultant claims would certainly have placed incredible pressure on claims personnel.
Insurance claims have to be considered on a case by case basis.
