As the cleanup continues in Oklahoma, the latest insurance claims filed following the tornado outbreak at the end of May offers another glimpse of just how destructive the storms were.

According to the Oklahoma Insurance Department, as of June 11, 60,308 claims had been filed with payments surpassing the $470 million mark. The agency said calls to its consumer assistance division have also risen 59% since the May 20 tornado in Moore, Okla. Approximately 40 requests for assistance forms have gone out each day since the destructive storm killed more than 24 people and leveled homes and other properties.

“These numbers are already staggering, and this is just the beginning,” said Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak, in a statement. “Many of the victims haven’t received their entire settlement checks yet, so that payment number will continue to go up for a while. This is something the state of Oklahoma is going to be dealing with for a long time.”
