ATLANTA (AP) - Damage from severe weather that has flooded north Georgia and killed at least eight people has been estimated at $250 million.

Insurance Commissioner John W. Oxendine announced the estimate Tuesday evening and said most of that amount is uninsured.

Oxendine said he spent time surveying the damage and many of the affected homeowners don’t have flood insurance.

Obama: U.S. Does Not Recognize 'Legitimacy of Continued Israeli Settlements'

In declaring that it is time for Middle East peace "without preconditions," President Obama used his speech to the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday to fire a warning at Israel that "America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements."

Obama's stark declaration, which drew applause, was coupled with a call for Palestinians to end their "incitement of Israel."

But it was the use of the U.N. forum to carry the settlement message to Israel that drew the most enthusiastic response on the floor -- and incredulous reaction outside its walls.

Obama just put Israel "on the chopping block," said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton.


Interesting Coincidence? Keep this up and we should probably buy freeze dried food and flashlights.
