Manitoba Public Insurance is making it easier for those impacted by the tornado that touched down near Alonsa to make vehicle damage claims.

A dedicated team of adjusters are set up to process total loss claims for affected area residents on a priority basis.

If you were impacted you are encouraged to call 1-800-665-2410 to report your claims.

MPI vehicle damage estimators are also in the area today and tomorrow to identify damaged vehicles and prepare initial damage estimates on-site.

MPI also works with local municipalities in rural Manitoba to establish temporary service locations in rural arenas and parking lots when required. Doing so ensures local service is provided in a timely and convenient manner to the hardest hit rural locations affected by summer storms.
