According to the company Agroseguro, the damages caused by the hail storms recorded in the last week of August in Alicante, which mainly hit some 900 hectares of citrus crops, are worth 3 million Euro.
In a statement, Agroseguro highlighted the impact of the hail storm of August 27, which mostly hit the municipalities of Orihuela, Benferri, Algorfa, Benejúzar and Almoradí.
The citrus productions (around 20 million kilograms) are the most damaged, with different degrees of harm, although those produced in Benferri stand out the most in this regard.
The appraisal work has already started, so Agroseguro has said that it is important for the insured to issue their claims promptly.
The company recalled that the damages caused by threats such as hail are covered by the Agrarian Insurance system.
