AIR Worldwide Estimates Industry Insured Losses for Winter Storm Eberhard
Winter Storm Eberhard follows on the heels of Freya/Bennet, which affected Wales and England on March 3, bringing strong winds and some flooding, then impacted Germany and parts of France and Denmark through March 5; Laura/Cornelius, which affected the UK and Scandinavian countries later the same week; and Dragi, which affected Northern Europe just before Eberhard.
On March 9-10 Eberhard first struck the UK, the Netherlands, and Belgium, then began impacting Germany and finally headed farther east, affecting Austria, the Czech Republic, and Poland. Local authorities reported felled trees, power outages, and travel disruption—including rail, road, and aviation.
