The emergency services were called out almost 1,800 times during Saturday’s storm and in the aftermath, news agency ANP says on Monday.
According to early estimates, insurance companies put the storm damage at around €13m but say the final total is likely to be far higher.
Most of the claims so far relate to damage to buildings and their contents as well as cars. A number of holidaymakers have also put in claims for damaged tents, the insurers’ association said.
The storm, described as the worst ever to hit the Netherlands in July, led to one death and a string of injuries as winds of over 110 kpn brought down trees and damaged buildings.
Public transport was seriously disrupted and dozens of roads were closed because of storm-related damage. A number of events and festivals were also cancelled because of the bad weather.
