After a 4.7 magnitude earthquake hit northern Oklahoma early this morning — the second in less than two weeks — many Oklahomans with earthquake insurance are still waiting to see if they’re covered. Insurers have a few days left to let consumers know whether their policies include earthquakes caused by oil and gas operations. Insurance Commissioner John Doak asked insurers in October to clarify because most of Oklahoma’s earthquakes are tied to wastewater injection."Really, the global earthquake industry on insurance is kind of watching what’s happening here and in other places around the United States," Doak said.
