OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak says a small earthquake in southern Oklahoma should prompt homeowners and renters to consider adding earthquake insurance to their insurance policies.
The U.S. Geological Survey recorded a 2.8-magnitude earthquake in Stephens County on Tuesday.
Doak says Oklahoma has seen a significant number of earthquakes in the past year. He says those quakes reinforce the need to add earthquake coverage to insurance policies to protect homes and possessions from natural disasters.
Doak says 95 earthquakes with a magnitude of 1.8 or greater were reported in Oklahoma in 2012, with the strongest registering a 3.8-magnitude. A record-breaking 5.6-magnitude earthquake hit Oklahoma in November 2011, damaging dozens of homes and businesses.
