We're beginning to learn just how much money December's holiday blizzard will end up costing New York City.

Published reports say the city has already paid nearly $730,000 in damages from the storm.

More than 800 claims have been filed, most of which involve snowplows damaging homes or cars.

Other claims are from people who say they were injured in the storm.

The cost of the settlements so far only cover about 35 percent of the total claims.
