Notes on significant weather not yet written

ONLY half the victims of the Glenelg North floods today had received government compensation more than three months after the incident, the Opposition has claimed.

Liberal Leader Rob Kerin said more than 70 families were still trying to cope with financial and emotional stress as a result of the Government's "tardiness".

It is understood 141 families had applied for the Government's "one-off" compensation payment, but only 67 claims had been processed.

On June 27, heavy rain and faulty Patawalonga gates caused the river to burst its banks, flooding 200 homes.

Emergency Services Minister Patrick Conlon said the need to obtain quotes from contractors for structural damage and the complexity of some claims had caused assessment delays.

"When residents accept an assessment it is paid immediately by the Government," he said.

Mr Conlon met with residents last week to discuss how the Government might provide other assistance but was not prepared to elaborate yesterday.

"I'm sure the approach we're taking is allowing damages to be paid years earlier than would have been the case if we hadn't intervened," he said.

Mr Conlon said the latest "guestimate" of the total damage bill was $1.7 million, well down on the $20 million figure flagged by some soon after the flooding.
