Event is set for tornado survivors
State Insurance Commissioner John Doak plans to hold a consumer assistance event for tornado survivors with unresolved insurance issues on June 3. The forum will take place at 6 p.m. at Westmoore High School, 613 S Western Ave., in Oklahoma City. “We know some survivors are still having some issues,” Doak said. “We want to do all we can to help them wrap up their claim and get on with their lives.” Tornado survivors have filed nearly 100,000 insurance claims since last year’s tornado outbreak, with insurance payments topping $1.1 billion, Doak said. Survivors who are not able to attend the forum in person are encouraged to call (800) 522-0071 for help with insurance claims. Despite a slower severe storm season this year, Doak urged Oklahomans to make sure they have sufficient insurance coverage. “You can’t let your guard down just because we haven’t seen an EF4 or an EF5 tornado yet. The next catastrophe could be right around the corner. ”
