RACQ GM speaks of shock at cyclone devastation
Tropical Cyclone Debbie crossed the Queensland coastline near Airlie Beach on Tuesday 28 March. The following day RACQ was the first insurer on the ground in the region with extra staff ready to help residents get back on their feet.
GM Personal Insurance Claims Andrew Johnson this week toured some of the worst hit areas and joined the team at the Mobile Member Centre in Mackay to help staff lodge claims and meet members affected by the cyclone.
Andrew said he was proud of the speed at which RACQ responded to the disaster and the positive impact the team on the ground had on members and the local community.
RACQ had already received almost 4,000 insurance claims from the weather event, more than 1,200 from residents in the Mackay region.
