Residents of a Richmond highrise that was struck by a small airplane in October will find out next week how much of the damage will be covered by insurance.
On Oct. 19, a twin-engine Piper Seneca slammed into the ninth floor of a tower at Rosario Gardens, causing extensive damage, flooding and forcing the building to be evacuated.
During the subsequent insurance investigation it was determined that the tower was leaky. Evidence was found of mould and previous water penetration.
Some residents are worried that the damaged floors might not be covered because of evidence of previous water damage. Gerry Fanaken, CEO of Vancouver Condominium Services, said the insurance adjuster has yet to make a decision but a report is expected late next week.
