As every flood event is different and brings new challenges, each one also provides an opportunity to learn. It should be standard procedure that in-depth, ‘forensic’ analysis is undertaken after large flood events. The insights then need to be shared and exchanged widely. This paper is intended as a contribution toward this approach. This report offer recommendations for ways to mitigate damage from such events in future and also include observations from Zurich risk engineers and claims experts, who were on the ground right after the floods to gain first-hand insights.
