Storm Babet and Storm Aline insurance industry losses revealed


Flooding resulting in industry losses

The extended period of severe weather, caused by the interaction of low-pressure systems Babet and Aline, led to incessant rain and high winds in the region. A stationary weather pattern resulted from a high-pressure system over Scandinavia blocking the low-pressure systems, causing prolonged heavy rains and high winds. This situation overwhelmed river and drainage capacities in Ireland, Scotland, northern England, and Wales, resulting in flash and river flooding.
