wow,. so wayne didn't have enough pre warning about the flood, or the level, to clear it all out? That's terrible.

Good for Aaron too, thanks!
rolled all the cars out in 12 inches of water. bit hard to unbolt hoists etc and get them moved. needed at least another 24 hours warning.

i don't think .... that any insurance company has a policy for natural disaster ..... do they ?????
i know a few people who got their cars damaged by hail storm last year in Melbourne ......and the insurance wouldn't simply ready to listen to them .... all they said was that it was not our policy

depends on the insurer,

we cover for water damage and storm damage, but not flood from a natural body of water (river lake) so it can be tricky, hydrologists ect get involved to determine what has caused the damage.

so, if you crash your car into a river, it's insured, but if the river crashes into you, you're fucked?

what bollox.

hoists should survive flood with minimal repairs,

and surely his sensitive wheel alignment stuff was portable? Mine is easily moved, and very expensive, so it would be a high priority for me.

speaking of which, is there an online geo map thingy, where I can see contour lines etc, to work out for myself my own flood risk ????

Google maps don't do contours????

BOM???

can't seem to find it.

Thanks.

Well, if a person doesn't like the policy, he doesn't have to buy it.  Allowing claims for uninsured events wouldn't make sense.

I don't envy RS at the moment - there's bound to be a lot of grief that can't be resolved.

clearly, but there's so many possibilities, that it's easy to overlook details regarding the origin of a flood.

If your roof lets the rain in, your covered, but if the rain comes in the door... your fucked?
