HAIL HITS VICTORIA

Hail has caused extensive damage to Australia’s major pear growing region, in Victoria’s north-east.

The damage has been sustained to orchards at Mooroopna, in the Goulburn Valley, responsible for 90 per cent of the country’s pear production.

Tony Filippi, from Fruit Growers Victoria, said the storm came through on Sunday night.

“It was very isolated, and typical of a hail event where some places didn’t get a drop of rain, but other places had 20 or 30 millimetres,” he said.

“Unfortunately with that rain came quite a bit of ice.”

Mr Filippi said growers were still assessing the damage.

“I’ve seen some vision where hail size was up to 20 millimetres, but that would be isolated cases,” he said.

“Generally it’s fingernail size or smaller. That sized hail is the one that causes you the most grief, as it just does nicking damage onto the fruitlet [young fruit].”

You can see quite a lot of shredded leaves on the ground, as well many of the young fruitlets have been shredded off and onto the ground.

The most damage has been done to pear trees, with many orchards in the early stages of fruit set. Apple trees in the region have also sustained damage.

“It has been quite extensive,” Mr Filippi said.

“You can see quite a lot of shredded leaves on the ground, as well many of the young fruitlets have been shredded off and onto the ground.

“Quite a few are sitting there but after a few days you can start to see a bit of blemish. It’s too early to tell what will happen to that fruit.”

Mr Filippi said given the damage occurred early in the pear-growing season, farmers had options.

“What can happen is the fruit that may be damaged can be taken off and thinned. Blemished fruit could be taken off the tree. If it’s any later, then it becomes a bigger issue,” he said.

“What we would like to do is for as many growers as possible to let us know what they’ve got, so we can build up a case for later in the season to vary the standards of pears in the domestic market.

“If growers that have been affected can leave slightly more fruit on the tree, to get a better pack-out, it will justify what they need to do to get them through the season.”

HAIL HITS LOWER CLARENCE

WILD weather has hit the Lower Clarence as a major hail storm hits the Tyndale area forcing cars from the Pacific Highway.

The storm cell has moved over Maclean from the west in the last half an hour and is expected to hit coastal towns Yamba and Iluka within the next hour.

Drivers are warned to drive at a maintained speed and use caution at all times.

The Daily Examiner’s Georja Ryan got caught up in the storm during her commute and shot the above video.

The hail and rain is bucketing down making visibility on the roads scarce.

Hail Damaged – Car Insurance

Hail Damaged Car Insurance

Hail Damaged Car Insurance

I’m thinking of purchasing a hail-damaged car…

Hail-damaged cars are usually vastly cheaper to purchase than their undamaged counterparts, which make them all the more tempting. But there is a reason for this. If the car you’re considering purchasing was comprehensively insured by the previous owner, chances are they may have received a payout from their insurer. The insurer considers the car a write-off, because the cost of repairing the damage amounted to more than 80 per cent of the sum insured.

Although it is possible to get registration for a damaged car that was previously a write-off, insurance companies may not be as keen.

It may be difficult to find Comprehensive car insurance or even Third Party Fire and Theft for a hail-damaged car, and you should factor this in when you consider buying one. Some insurance companies won’t offer these insurances at all, while others may, but at a price.

It is likely that you will be offered Third Party Property for a hail-damaged car. This will exempt you from legal liability for any damage to other people’s vehicles or property from an accident you cause, but it will not cover your own. If you’re satisfied with this insurance, which is more cost-effective than Comprehensive car insurance and Third Party Fire and Theft, then it is a great option for you.

I already own a hail-damaged car…

If your car has already been damaged by hail and you didn’t have comprehensive car insurance, you won’t be able to claim now for repairs on any panel the hail has affected. If you’re considering insuring your car now, post-damage, it’s very important that you consider what car insurance options are available to you.

Many insurers won’t provide Comprehensive car insurance, and some will even refuse Third Party Fire and Theft for a hail-damaged car, so you may only have the option of Third Party Property car insurance. This means that if your car is damaged in an accident or is stolen, you won’t have any cover to repair or replace your car, but the vehicle and property of anyone affected by an accident you cause will be covered.

Finding Affordable Insurance

The best way to find affordable car insurance for your hail-damaged car is to compare quotes and read the product disclosure statements so you know exactly what you’re covered for.

It is important that you answer questions about the damage truthfully to your insurer, or your claim could be rejected when you need car insurance the most.

If you have a hail-damaged car or are thinking of buying one, compare some car insurance quotes and see what cover is available for your car.
