Around 3,700 claims have been received by AXA insurance alone, as announced on Monday. The regions north of Thun, Malters / Kriens in the canton of Lucerne and Friborg were particularly affected by the storm. In some cases, the thunderstorm also caused property damage to buildings and household items. Most of the damage was caused to cars. AXA has activated a specialized task force and strengthened the service center, as it reports. From June 28th, damage to the vehicles can be assessed and estimated by vehicle experts in specially set up drive-ins in Thun.
