Ever noticed how some Perth suburbs hit the headlines after a big storm more than others?

It's all about location. Sometimes storms hit hard across a wide area but often the damage is a lot more localised. How does your suburb stack up? We've crunched the numbers using four years of storm claims data and mapped out which areas are more often in the eye of the storm.
