CAT response services: Queensland declares catastrophe following hail storm

Severe weather hit the state’s southeast on Saturday, with large hail stones—some tennis ball in size—striking a number of Brisbane suburbs. This has caused significant damage to homes, vehicles and local businesses. As of Sunday, the Insurance Council of Australia received more than 14,500 claims, with insured losses estimated at $170M. Springfield, Rosewood, Greenbank and Boronia Heights, all south of Brisbane, were among the hardest-hit suburbs.

We’re here to support you Given the size of the event, we’ve mobilised our colleagues from Queensland and additional adjusters from interstate to best support those in need. We strictly adhere to all COVID-19 safety requirements and are liaising closely with the Insurance Council of Australia in terms of specific government rulings that allow or restrict site attendance. Our adjusters and building consultants have been inspecting the damage since Sunday together with our drone teams and are working closely with builders to manage the initial makesafe needs prior to any further wet weather.

Our catastrophe manager, Andrew Broadhurst, is supported by our operational managers in Brisbane, Doug Garner and Simon Chenery.
