On Saturday September 24, a storm of historic proportions made landfall in eastern Canada. By the time it reached the Atlantic provinces, the category storm 4 hurricane had been downgraded to a post-tropical storm, but it was still enough to cause lasting damage to homes and communities that were directly affected.
Crawford & Company (Canada) was actively monitoring the storm path as it headed north. We’ve been working closely with our clients and partners in the area to determine how we can best serve their needs. As of Monday, September 26, Crawford had experienced six times the normal call volume at the call center, while Contractor Connection, our network for deploying external contractors, received 50 times the normal activity.
Our adjusters began receiving claims for wind damages in the immediate aftermath of the storm, as heavy gusts brought down trees and powerlines on public infrastructure and private property. With rain in the forecast all week, we are anticipating seeing more claims as they relate to water and flooding. Power remains out in many areas, so we are also anticipating seeing more claims for business interruption. It will therefore be some time before we see the full extent of the damages.
We continue to evaluate the damage caused by post-tropical storm Fiona. We know from government and public utility reports, as well as the volume of claims received, that the damages to the region are significant and catastrophic.
We encourage those impacted to file online claims as we continue to experience higher than normal call volumes.
