Associated Press News Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- State officials say Georgians filed claims for an estimated $75 million in insured losses after temperatures in the region dropped well below freezing.

Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said in a statement Tuesday that the figure could rise as additional claims are filed. Hudgens says damage to property after last week's sub-freezing temperatures was particularly extensive in northern Georgia.

Hudgens is reminding Georgians to call his office's Consumer Services Division at 404-656-2070 if they have questions about a claim, or are having difficulties reaching their insurance company. Consumers calling from outside metro Atlanta may reach the division at 1-800-656-2298.

Hudgens says phone lines are open between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
