North Texas ice storm insured damage reaches $30M

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - An industry group says damage from this month's North Texas ice storm has reached at least $30 million in residential insured losses.

Officials with the Insurance Council of Texas say the losses include downed trees hitting homes, broken pipes and other residential damage in the Dallas area and nearby. The preliminary estimate Thursday does not include losses to vehicles, roads or government property.

Council spokesman Mark Hanna says the losses are expected to go higher.

The wintry weather that hit North Texas beginning Dec. 5 closed schools, government offices and businesses and stranded motorists. Some closures and power outages lingered into this week as thick ice that glazed roads slowly melted.
