Hi guys,

In response to my concerning comments about the inadequecies of the Queensland Flooding disasters and now coupled with the Tropical Cyclone Yasi events, I received my insurance premiums from a well know insurance company - you know the main one in NSW. Insurance premiums have doubled - yes doubled since last year! And I have heard this (doubled premiums) is the case with other insurance companies.

Just incredible!

Our house is insured with one of the main providers who does cover floods, and since the Gap Storm hit in 2008 the policy sky rocketed. The policy paid approx.6 months ago was $1367.00. We live on top of a high hill about 65 meters above sea level and the crime rate is not too bad. Cant imagine the cost for renewal next time around. May have to sell a kidney on E Bay.  :-\
