La Niña: its impact and how to prepare your business.

The Bureau of Meteorology has declared a La Niña event is underway in the Pacific Ocean and communities in eastern Australia should be prepared for above-average rainfall over spring and summer.

What is La Niña

  • La Niña is an event that typically brings above-average rainfall for Australia, particularly across eastern, central, and northern regions.
  • This may result in torrential rain, floods, cyclones and storms, all of which can have a big impact on your home, business and the wider community.

Review your insurances

  • Call us to review your cover and make sure you have the right – and adequate – insurance in place.
  • Take a close look at your policy exclusions, especially flood. We can explain the ins and outs.
  • Consider business interruption insurance.
  • Will disruption to your suppliers affect your business, as has happened to many during COVID-19?

Practical ways to prepare

  • Get regular building inspections completed on your home and workplace and follow the recommendations.
  • Maintain roofs and guttering, and ensure your buildings are watertight.
  • Check your drainage and consult with your council if there are local drainage issues.
  • Develop an evacuation plan for you, your employees and your family.
