It just minced the gazeebo, we were both holding it down and then came a gust of wind and it was mangled. Insurance job!

GF is not happy - plants on the balcony got slaughtered, totally.
Mr L and I rushed out and lifted all ours down onto the ground where they are better protected - and then the hail missed us. Ah well, better safe than sorry.

The insurance chap inevitably will question the quality of your gazebo ! A gazebo here should survive a storm of that size. Was it too old, too weak, already damaged before ??? lots of questions

Brand new - 400 CHF from Jumbo in April, we had extra lashings and bricks weighing the poles down, even with two people holding it, it just buckled.

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

well , in Singapore it is always hot, but when the sun shines without clouds it feels like it is burning your head off and sometimes they got so much rain, you can't see the opposite footpath of the street, the visibility is at around 3-5 meters .
Spending 2 days there is ok, but living there ?

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

Sounds like the same storm that came over us in Brügg. Suddenly got really dark, started raining, then about the strongest wind I've ever seen (branches were instantly falling off trees) and huge lightning strikes. Lasted about 10 minutes and then it was calm again.

Well, I am not an expert, but the one sent over by the insurance most certainly IS You may be lucky in case the damage sum is regarded as "Bagatelle" and will be handled as a routine-case

the windows of the rooms with the computers were open ??? any insurance company will take this as total negligence, not least as the meteo-forecasters had warned about it, and it had become easy to predict already in late afternoon
