"Most [people call asking] ‘What does it take to get additional coverage for earthquake type insurance?'" said Lance Singleton, the Chief Financial Officer for the Oklahoma Agency Alliance (OAA).

OAA represents 93 insurance carriers, and Singleton says getting earthquake insurance is fairly cheap and simple.

"A $100,000 home…can be endorsed maybe as low as $45, and it could be as much as $200 to $300," Singleton said.

A smaller quake struck in the same area at approximately 9 p.m. The USGS recorded that quake at a 2.2 magnitude.

No damage or injuries have been reported with either earthquake.

According to the USGS, quakes with magnitudes from 2.5 to 3 are generally the smallest ones felt by humans.
