We have just had a text message from a neighbour in our village to say that our barn roof has been damaged by last night's storm, which I gather was pretty bad. Is there widespread damage in the Creuse and do you know if it has been designated a "natural disaster" (or whatever) that means you have to get your insurance claim in very quickly? We have asked them to take a photo of it for us for the insurance company. In the very bad storms about ten years ago we had roof damage to the house and barn which was repaired immediately by our dear, sadly late, neighbour's son-in-law, a builder, after he had repaired his own. He then went on to spend the next six months or so doing roof repairs for unlucky home owners. I trust the situation isn't so bad this time.
I hope all our fellow Pontnoirers' property is OK.
