The Insurance Council says this year could turn out to be one of the costliest for weather damage.
The council said weather-related payouts so far this year total over $134 million.
It said the Easter storm that hit the West Coast had so far cost over $55 million alone.
The storm that lashed Northland, Auckland and the Coromandel in early-July had also cost more than $15 million.
Insurance Council Chief Executive Tim Grafton said last year's insurance bill was $175 million dollars - the second most expensive year since 1968.
