Insurance Department Offering Help After Historic Earthquake

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) is committed to helping those affected by one of the strongest earthquakes in state history. Gov. Mary Fallin declared a state of emergency in Pawnee County, the area rocked hardest by Saturday’s 5.6 magnitude quake. OID representatives toured the damaged areas and met with local officials Tuesday.

“Oklahoma is vulnerable to earthquakes right now,” said Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak. “My department wants to make sure the people hit the hardest can recover quickly. We can answer their insurance questions and walk them through the claims process.”

Representatives from the OID’s Consumer Assistance Division will be available to answer earthquake insurance questions Thursday at the Pawnee Public Library from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

A standard homeowners’ insurance policy does not cover earthquake damage. But many Oklahomans have earthquake coverage through an endorsement on their homeowners’ policy or through a stand-alone policy. This type of coverage protects your home from catastrophic damage.

Earthquake insurance typically covers:
• Home repairs needed because of the quake
• Replacement of personal property directly damaged by the earthquake
• Additional living expenses while your home is rebuilt or repaired
• Debris removal

Earthquake insurance does not cover:
• Replacement of brick, rock or stone that covers the outside of your home
• Damage to your lot or land
• External water damage
• Vehicle damage

Many insurance companies won’t sell earthquake insurance immediately after an earthquake. The moratorium can be anywhere from 72 hours to 60 days after the quake.

Consumers with questions about earthquake insurance are encouraged to call our Consumer Assistance team at 800-522-0071. Information is also available at

$1,100 Donation To Collinsville Student Council In August

- Submitted Photo from August 25, 2016 Check Presentation at CHS

The Farmers agents involved were
Rod Morton (Owasso)
Steve Doss (Collinsville)
Rafy Santiago (Tulsa)
Scott Baker (Tulsa)

Laura Sheehan is the Collinsville Student Council sponsor

Each year Farmers agent Rafy Santiago puts together a USA Cycling sanctioned bike race at Lake Skiatook in March, called the Tall Chief Classic. He gets his fellow agents in Chad Tredway's District 22 to volunteer their time and vehicles to be chase vehicles in each class, and to direct traffic at intersections and in return the sponsors donate some of their proceeds to a charity of the choosing of the agents that participate in the race. In past years the money has gone to organizations like March of dimes and other similar charities.

This year however, given the cutbacks in education funding, the agents decided that the money may be better utilized in helping with local schools. Agent Rod Morton was introduced to Laura Sheehan, the Student Council leader at Collinsville high school and she was explaining that because of budget issues the student council wasn't going to be able to do some of the projects that they often done in the past. So agents, Rafy of Tulsa, Rod of Owasso, Steve Doss of Collinsville, Scott Baker of Tulsa along with district manager Chad Tredway decided to combine those race funds with funds from Farmers affinity marketing program to make an 1,100 donation to the student council for the year, which they presented the check on Thursday August 25th to the members of the student council

Farmers takes funding education very seriously in projects such as Thank America's teachers and even goes as far offering discounts to educators.

You have the quote from Laura before and then I will also forward you an email that she just sent to me explaining more of what they will do with the money.

If you need any other information please let me know.

Thank you,
