Feb. 1, 2013 – The damage estimate from Georgia’s fire and insurance commissioner from Wednesday’s tornadoes in northwest Georgia is out.
The initial damage estimate is $75 million after the twisters struck Calhoun and Adairsville.
State Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said that the $75 million estimate is for insured losses.
He said “That figure will rise as new claims are reported.”
Sadly in Adairsville, 51-year-old Anthony Raines was killed when a tree crashed onto his mobile home. Several injuries were also reported.
Here in northeast Georgia, torrential rains were the problem.
The rain caused some streets to flood and flooded a mobile home park in the city’s south side.
