N. GA storms won't affect our car insurance

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Auto claims in Dougherty and Lee counties won't be affected by the winter storm auto claims.  One insurance agent says our area should see any effect in auto rates.

J. W. Cooper with State Farm says there should not be a trickle down affect from the bad  weather that happened close to Atlanta last week.   

"Rates are based on areas and territories and the territories that we are in southwest Georgia are not lumped in with the Atlanta drivers. So their experience up there affects their rates and our experience here affects our rates here locally," said Cooper.

Cooper says he filed one claim last week not related to the weather. Auto claims in Atlanta have already reached a thousand.
