Whilst June was the first month of the meteorological summer it was typically a wet affair with some torrential, thundery downpours leading to localised flooding particularly in the South Eastern region which provided plenty of interesting claims for our adjusting team. Conditions in Essex and Middlesex as well as central London were particularly severe and these areas were close to being recorded as the wettest June since records began in 1910.

Not quite a surge event
Whilst not quite a surge event our adjusters dealt admirably with the influx of work that was received particularly following the prolonged and very torrential rainfall that fell across Central and South West London on the early morning of 23rd June, a date perhaps best known for another seismic event.
On the occasion fire services were overwhelmed with more than 550 emergency calls received by them between 04.00 and 0.7.00 hrs and by 10.00 over 400 flood incident shad been reported the majority of which were in the Westminster area. There was widespread travel disruption with underground services being disrupted and Waterloo station closing during the evening rush hour as 100`s of rail services were cancelled and delayed.
