Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland today issued an emergency order aimed at speeding up insurance claims in the wake of Monday's deadly tornadoes.
The declaration, routine in cases of widespread insured losses, enables emergency claims adjusters to be licensed temporarily to expedite the insurance claims process and provide immediate assistance.
Dozens of homes and businesses were destroyed by Monday's severe weather.
"I am working to make sure companies are able to bring in experienced adjusters from other states to expedite the claims process," Holland said in a statement.
Holland's order allows for emergency adjusters to be licensed for 90 days and to adjust claims related to Monday's severe storms.
