Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak has toured the damage areas in Mannford, Drumright and Luther.
He said he wants disaster victims to know they can rely on the insurance department.
"We really want to take the leadership role to be there where they are, make it easy for someone who's been this type of disaster to put their lives back together," said Doak. "Again in Oklahoma, we do an absolutely great job at taking care of each other."
He said victims need to be aware of potential scams in the area.
If you want help when filing claims with home, business or health insurance -- he recommends reaching out to the state insurance department at 1-800-522-0071.
