- Bureau of Meteorology warns we are most at risk of severe rain and storms1 this summer, due to La Niña, but two thirds of Australia believe that bushfires are most likely to be experienced this summer (67 per cent)
- New research from Allianz reveals almost half of Australians (45 per cent) don’t even know what La Niña truly means, and are instead spending 45 million hours1 on Christmas planning rather than preparing for the wild summer ahead
- Allianz has recruited Tim Bailey as Chief Weather Officer to help get Aussies La Niña ready
New research commissioned by Allianz Australia has shown Australia is not as prepared as it should be for the extreme summer weather ahead. Despite the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology warning of a 70 per cent increased chance of extreme wet weather conditions such as storms and cyclones due to La Niña, the perceived reality for Australians is very different.
