Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said estimated insured losses stand at $25 million after last week’s winter storm, according to a report our affiliate CBS Atlanta. The number is expected to go higher.

The estimate was based on claims reported by various property and casualty insurance companies. “Data collected by insurance adjusters are now reaching my office,” Hudgens said. “We anticipate that figure to rise as new claims are reported.”

If you have questions about your policy, or if you are experiencing difficulty reaching your company, call the Consumer Services Hotline at (404) 656-2070. Phone lines are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
