Lee County-  Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner John Oxendine was back in south Georgia Monday to survey more tornado damage.  

One hundred nineteen structures were damaged in the weekend storm, 80 homes, 28 mobile homes and 10 businesses. The insured losses are expected to total more than five million dollars, but unfortunately for these storm victims other than insurance there may not be any help repairing those damages. 

"It does look like because it is so sporadic in different counties that the storm did isolated damage it might be difficult to meet that legal criteria to declare disaster areas, but that is a decision Governor Perdue will be making," said John Oxendine, Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner. 

Oxendine stopped in Lee County to talk with homeowners and ensure they have been able to reach representatives from their insurance companies. Oxendine said any storm victims with insurance trouble should contact his office.
