The value of claims related to the tornadoes that hit Oklahoma in May has increased to $687.9 million as the number of claims has risen above 70,000, according to the state Insurance Department. "The victims of these devastating tornadoes will be dealing with the aftermath for quite a while," said Insurance Commissioner John Doak. "The claim filings are slowing down, but they're nowhere near complete. Most policies allow for claims to be turned in up to one year from the date of loss."
