The numbers are in and according to the Insurance Bureau of Canada the flooding which impacted the Windsor and Tecumseh areas at the end of September has resulted in almost $108 million in insured damage. That works out to over 6,000 home, auto, and business claims.
During the night of September 28th and 29th, heavy rain fell over Windsor and Tecumseh resulting in significant flooding across the region. A state of emergency was declared on the evening of September 29th.
“Flood events are happening across Canada with more frequency and with greater severity,” said Kim Donaldson, Vice-President, Ontario, IBC. “It is important that Canadians understand their insurance policies and that they know what’s covered before bad weather strikes.”
