State Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens says a storm that hit Georgia June 13 caused an estimated $50 million in insured losses.

Hudgens said Monday that the figure could rise once all the claims associated with the storm are settled. The storm left more than 160,000 Georgia Power customers without service and caused two EF1 tornadoes in Cherokee and Cobb counties. Several people were also injured by falling trees.

Hudgens says policy holders who are still looking for help with claims are asked to call 1-800-656-2298. Phone lines are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
