It seems that, this time of year, tornadoes seem to be the norm in the state of Oklahoma. That reality became clear again last night.
Farmers Insurance stated that Severe weather claimed at least one life and injured multiple others last night in Oklahoma. Tornadoes were reported throughout the state and significant damage was noted near both Moore and Tulsa. In response, Farmers Insurance catastrophe claims representatives, agents, other personnel and resources are engaged and have begun helping customers who suffered damage from the storm.
Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak said he wants to make sure tornado survivors get the help they need. More than 1,100 homeowners insurance claims have already been filed in relation to Wednesday’s severe weather across the state.
“Tornadoes are a devastating act of Mother Nature that Oklahomans are all too familiar with. After seeing the damage in Sand Springs and Moore, I know it will take a while for these families to recover,” said Doak. “We want to make sure these folks have their insurance claims handled promptly and fairly.”
OID has set up consumer assistance booths to help storm survivors. The booths are located at the Serve Moore Community Renewal Center, 224 S. Chestnut Ave. and the Foundation Church, 7785 S. Highway 97, Sapulpa.
“Sadly, this is also a time when crooks try to take advantage of people. Our Anti-Fraud Unit is out making sure that doesn’t happen,” said Doak.
