Ihe insurers were on deck this weekend to collect claims from their customers. “Files are opened as they arise, explained to us Barbara Van Speybroeck, spokesperson for Assuralia, whom we contacted late Sunday morning. However, we do not yet have an overall assessment of the cost of the damage. We are only on the second day; and the weather services announce a new storm this Sunday evening and Monday. »
However, the companies do not expect, for the moment, to have to assume an exceptional bill for this type of natural phenomenon, specified the spokesperson for the federation of insurance companies. Nothing to do in any case with the floods of last summer, whose damage is estimated at a good 2 billion euros, mainly in Wallonia.
