Last night the weather over here (Norn Iron) was fecking terrible, wind , rain, sleet blowing a hooley. Our attic roof devlopes a leak and me and the Mrs are running around laying down plastic sheets and placing buckets all over the place. Rang the insurance comany this morning explained to the the situation to them only to be told there was no storm in our area last night. Apparently they get the windspeed from an internet site(wouldn't tell me which one) and the windspeed where I live was only 37mph and it has to be over 49mph to be classed as a storm. Doesn't matter that we had monsoon conditions and the BBC weather people were dishing out Severe weather warnings for the area. So now I have to get an assessor around to see if it was the weather that caused the leak send them a report to see if I can claim or not, but it doesn't sound to hopeful. Anyone been in this situation before and what they did to get the insurance company to play ball??
