AUSTIN (AP) - An industry group said that 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 said that the losses include downed trees hitting homes, broken pipes and other residential damage in the Dallas area and nearby. The preliminary estimate on Thursday does not include losses to vehicles, roads or government property.

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

The wintry weather that hit North Texas beginning December 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.
