The British do love talking about the weather, but why does one nation obsess over something so seemingly banal? Well, besides being an easy icebreaker, our weather is also highly variable and people are often caught unawares by sudden swings from stormy skies to blazing sunshine. Occasionally, extreme events throw the country into a flurry of trepidation, and being unprepared could cost more than wet feet or a sunburnt nose.
Storms have the power to topple immense trees, tear the roofs off houses, hurl debris at great speeds, and cause devastating floods, all leading to millions of pounds in damages. But if you take sensible precautions and get appropriate property insurance, you can focus on the most important thing during an emergency: your safety.
It may not be Tornado Alley, but the UK has experienced some extremely destructive storms in recent years. Preparing your property during a lull could save you a lot of trouble and money when the next one strikes.
With countless ways to check the forecast or hear breaking news, people will soon know when a storm is on the horizon. Forecasters can usually give a few days warning, which is plenty of time to take action.
In the midst of a major storm, your personal safety is the priority. Do not do anything that will put you or your friends and family at risk, and keep a mobile phone on you at all times.
Once the wind has dropped, and the rain stopped, the next step will be assessing the damage. This will be an upsetting and emotional time. We want you to get the best out of your insurance, and smoothly onto the road to recovery:
Your insurance provider can advise on the best course of action in the wake of a storm.
