Post-Loss Damage Assessment and Business Recovery Management: Cyclone Debbie and Associated Floods


Cyclone Debbie has been the largest weather event to hit northern Queensland since Cyclone Yasi in 2011. The unusual nature of Cyclone Debbie has resulted in significant damage initially from the cyclone and from the subsequent floods caused by the rain brought by Cyclone Debbie.  The floods continue to be a cause of concern in areas which were not directly affected by the cyclone.

As Queensland continues to manage through the overwhelming impacts of this natural disaster, companies are also assessing business recovery and restoration options, including production and distribution alternatives. Given the extent of the business interruption being faced in Queensland, actions taken at an early stage can be essential to a company’s finances, operations, and overall success. Marsh Risk Consulting’s Forensic Accounting and Claims Services (FACS) Practice can help your company – no matter the industry – work through the vast number of claim-related issues following this flooding. Our team of forensic accounting and claims professionals can provide you with global expertise and proactive support to help manage this crisis. We offer claims leadership and other resources to help you mitigate your losses, focus your attention on your employees and community, and achieve a timely recovery and return to business.
