Georgia's Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said arctic weather that struck Georgia last week caused an estimated $75 million in insured losses.
"That figure may rise as new claims are reported," Hudgens said. "The damage was quite extensive in some northern counties."
Hudgens reminds Georgians that they can call the Consumer Services Division at 1-800-656-2298, if they have questions about a claim, or if they are experiencing difficulty reaching their insurance company.
Phone lines are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
