(CS) A severe storm that swept across Luxembourg on July 6 caused millions worth of damage, with over 2,000 claims filed with insurance companies.

The insurance company association ACA on Monday said that claims worth a combined total of five million euros were filed following the storm. Most claims were submitted for damage to buildings, with storm damage covered by fire insurance.

Cars damaged by hail, falling trees and branches meanwhile are only covered when there is a so-called CASCO insurance on the car.
