Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine said that insured losses in North Georgia from the recent snow and ice storm are estimated to be about $25 million.

The estimate includes damage to cars as well as homes and businesses and that more than 4,500 claims were reported.

Oxendine said automotive damage was especially heavy, with multiple-vehicle accidents at several locations around the metro area.

Oxendine reminded Georgians that they can call the Consumer Services Division at 404-656-2070 or, outside the Metro area, 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 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
