Western Australia has been declared an Insurance Catastrophe in the wake of Tropical Cyclone Seroje that made landfall on Sunday, 11 April 2021. The coastal town of Kalbarri took the brunt of the cyclone and is considered “ground zero” for the worst hit regions in the direct path of the CAT 3 system. We are seeing a stream of lodgements coming through in the regions of Kalbarri, Northampton and the greater Geraldton region. Over the coming weeks we expect to see this stream of claims continue at a slow and steady pace as these regions come back on line with power and telecommunications.
Many of our customers, staff and contractors in New South Wales have been impacted by what has been described as the worst rain event in three decades, leaving properties severely damaged by this devastating storm and flooding. To date AJ Grant has received 300 plus jobs, half of these requiring some sort of make safe and we expect to see these numbers increase significantly over the coming days as communities are allowed back to their homes.
