ADAIRSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Georgia's fire and insurance commissioner plans to fly over tornado-damaged areas in northwest Georgia Thursday, one day after storms demolished homes in Adairsville and overturned vehicles along nearby Interstate 75.
    
Fire Safety and Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said he plans to assess the damage from the air, beginning with a fly-over in Calhoun Thursday morning.
    
National Weather Service crews will assess storm damage in Gordon County and Bartow County, which is home to Adairsville, forecaster Mike Leary said early Thursday. Crews will also assess damage from possible tornadoes in Floyd, Paulding and Gilmer counties before confirming how many tornadoes struck the state Wednesday, Leary said.
    
About 10 people stayed overnight at a shelter in hard-hit Adairsville, American Red Cross spokesman Ruben Brown said.
