Officials are trying to get a handle on the rising number of earthquakes across the state.

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission released part of a new plan today that will regulate 400 injection wells over 5,000 square miles and several cities.

Details of the plan will be released on Monday.

We spoke with the State Insurance Commissioner today about the growing number of claims for earthquake damage.

John Doak said homeowners' policies don't automatically cover damage from earthquakes, so you should talk with a qualified insurance agent about adding coverage.

He says earthquake coverage adds a few dollars a month to your premium and covers repairs, replacement, living expenses and debris removal.

You can protect yourself before an earthquake strikes.

  • Take a home inventory of all your belongings
  • Organize them in a way that makes sense to you.. Such as by room, by category, oldest to newest, or least to most expensive.
  • Take pictures of everything
  • Store your inventory in a safe place that's easy to find.

There are also apps to help you keep a home inventory.
