Storm Helios Causes €1.8M In Damages Claims

According to the Malta Insurance Agency, the gale-force storm Helios that occurred in February resulted in damages exceeding €1.8 million.


The storm caused significant rainfall and wreaked havoc on various properties, businesses, yachts, and vehicles, leading to insurance claims.


Commercial policies such as those covering engineering and electrical equipment and industrial property accounted for the highest number of claims, followed by property and home policies. Other categories of claims included yachts, pleasure craft, vehicles, and agriculture.


In total, the damages amounted to €1.83 million, which is approximately one-fifth of the damages caused by the record-breaking storm in 2019 that resulted in €8.6 million worth of claims across similar policy categories.
