August 2010
$400 million estimated damages is ranking Calgary's July hailstorm as Canada's largest.  Insurance companies have done an amazing job to contact clients within days and initiate the repair process.  Special task forces have been set up bringing adjusters from across the country to help.  Auto Repair shops and contractors are booking into 2011.  Is there a silver lining to Alberta's dark grey clouds?  Perhaps the economic stimulus to some businesses will create jobs.  Over 400 forest fires are burning in BC and homes have been destroyed.  Manitoba has suffered floods.  Ontario has endured windstorms.  Rising claims costs will impact general rates in the near future.

States of emergency were declared following heavy rains that led to floods in Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan, forcing the evacuation of hundreds of homes and causing a sinkhole on the TransCanada Highway.

Insurance companies have mobilized their Disaster teams of claims personnel to assist customers with appropriate Water Damage coverage.  As Flood is a standard exclusion in policy wordings, the Government of Alberta has a Disaster Recovery Program. For more information on the Disaster Program contact 1-888-671-1111 or click here. This Website also provides links to other helpful resources such as how to fight mold.
