ATLANTA (AP) - A major insurer says Georgia residents file the most claims for lightning strikes in the country.

State Farm officials told WSB-TV (https://bit.ly/1HbPRaa ) that it paid more than $16 million for lightning-related claims in 2014.

The owner of Labeled Lightning Protection Inc., Reagan Cortes, said fires caused by lightning can be prevented with a protection system.
