The insurance and reinsurance industry loss estimate caused by October’s European extratropical cyclone Herwart has been raised slightly to EUR 255 million by catastrophe event claims data aggregator PERILS AG.
European windstorm Herwart struck Austria and Germany on 29th October 2017, causing significant damage, and also affected Denmark, although to a much lesser degree.
Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia were also all impacted and received damage from Herwart’s winds, however losses from these countries are not included in PERILS estimate as it does not cover them.
