Today, insurers will yet again begin to assess the cost of devastation following the latest flooding to hit central and western England.

Combined with June's floods, which are estimated to have cost insurers £1.5bn, 2007 already counts as one of the direst years yet for weather-related insurance claims. "It's definitely among the worst," said the ABI. Last month's flooding alone prompted more than 27,000 household and 7,000 business claims. This year could even surpass 1990, when storm and flood damage cost a record £2bn. In a "moderate" year, weather-related claims cost insurers £800m to £900m, while in a low year they amount to just £400m. (Source: FT)

Winter Storm Kyrill in January and widespread flooding this summer suggest the climate’s impact isn’t just a theoretical concern for the future. Could these events become more frequent as the climate heats up?
