The rain has been torrential and the wind relentless. However when I put a claim in to Linea Directa saying that I had noticed my roof tiles had moved they told me i had no claim as the winds did not exceed 96Km per hour and the tiles need to fall off for there to be a claim. Damage is damage which could lead to even a fatal accident. Can't believe that a gust of 96kms could be more damaging than relentless sustained wind.
