POLICE circulating the areas of ROJALES,FORMENTURA near the Segura river telling residents via loud hailer in Spanish AND ENGLISH to be ready to evacuate in case the banks burst, Heavy rain up country in Oriuela pouring millions of liters rain water into the already swollen river, never seen it as high in the last 10years.

Parts of Orihuela had 200lt per m2 in the past 24 hours, like a war zone.

This is the new car storage yard on the N340 on the approach to Orihuela.

Tell everybody this please:
Hi

FLOOD DAMAGE and INSURANCE

CARS and insurance for flood damage

Just in case you do not already know, if you have fully comprehensive cover on your car you are paying a small amount each month to the Consortio. The Insurance will not pay for your car repairs for the Gota Fria but the Corsortio will. You need to make a claim with the Consortio. We only found this out when we were caught out in the last Gota Fria earlier this year when our car was water logged. The Consortio paid out - we had no problem.

HOUSE and insurance for flood damage.

Exactly the same applies as above. If you have House and Contents insurance you are also paying a small amount each year to the Consortio, so you make your claim with the Consortio - as same as you would for the car above.

Need any further advice come back to me and I will look up details of our claim with the Consortio so that you have telephone numbers, addresses of where to claim etc., BUT your Insurance Company should help you with the relevant claim - must add here ours did not help us, but another insurance company did. Hence we changed insurance companies when the car insurance ran out.

Good luck, Remember, if you are insured you are covered, do not accept that you are not, you are paying the Consortio every month so you are entitled to claim.

If you are not insurance, sorry I cannot help you.

Hi Jan,

I have been trying to put the message below on any Quesada forum as an Announcement but I do not think it will let me do that as the Announcements seem to be made via yourself. Can you please arrange for the message below to be inserted as everybody needs to know that if they have insurance they can make a claim via the Consortio. Their insurance company will probably tell them they will not pay - this happened to me but I did not give in.

Thanks Andrea that's really helpful information.

Our insurance company never mentioned anything regarding this when we took our many policies out with them years ago so will remember this for the future.
