Over the weekend the city of Melbourne was hit by a heavy hail storm. Storms have also hit the headlines in Europe and the USA is recent months as the cause of disruption.
Three years ago a similar cell storm caused considerable damage to the commerical centre of Canberra.
We read about these being extreme cases – “100 year” storms – but clearly they are becoming a lot more frequent than that. This coupled with the global reach of supply chains means that we will never really know where/when our next disruption will hit.
Do you have hail or other severe storm risk in your risk register and your contingency plans?
Do you include the non-routine weather events?
If not – why not?
