Storm Sabine caused insured damages of 675 mln euros in Germany – GDV

Storm Sabine caused insured losses of 675 million euros ($731 million) in Germany this month, the GDV insurance association said on Tuesday, making it the 6th most costly storm in Europe’s largest economy since 2002.

Storm Sabine, which was known as Ciara in Britain, last week disrupted air and rail transport in countries like Germany, the Netherlands and Britain.

The damages from the storm include 600 million euros being paid by insurance companies for 500,000 damaged homes, commercial and industrial properties, GDV added. It said an additional 75 million was being paid by auto insurers.

Total insured property losses from Sabine/Ciara could be between 1.1 billion and 1.8 billion euros, catastrophe risk modelling firm RMS estimated on Friday.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!
