Summer Storms Becoming More Damaging
Summer storms have become more frequent and violent in recent years, so more attention should be paid to preventing damage, according to the results of nationally representative research commissioned by Groupama Biztosító, writes business daily Világgazdaság.
After the storms at the beginning of the summer in June, insurers made one and a half times as many claims payouts to home insurance holders than at this time last year.
The most common precaution in the event of a storm is to close windows and doors, pack away movable objects, and secure pets.
Although it is more common among younger age groups to check what to expect before outdoor events or vacations, all generations should pay attention to storm signals and warnings.
