ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Halloween hail storm repair delays leave Springfield residents frustrated with insurers | ABC News” – below is their description.
Anger towards the insurance industry is growing as Springfield residents find themselves fighting to get their homes repaired after last year’s Halloween hailstorm.
The fierce storm saw hail stones as big as cricket balls smash south-east Queensland, damaging thousands of homes.
Springfield, west of Brisbane, was hard hit and while some homes are gradually being repaired, others still have leaking roofs, unreliable power connections and unclear timelines for completion.
Peter Neumann was still waiting to find out when the still-leaking roof of his Springfield Lakes home would be fixed.
“To have part power, part air-con, the roof leaking, water coming through lights and air fittings — it’s been quite stressful at times,” Mr Neumann said.
“The roof not being fixed and still leaking since October, that’s been painful — it’s been a painful experience to get to where we have.”ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
