Earthquakes can strike anywhere in the U.S. Statistics show there are about 5,000 earthquakes that take place every year in the U.S. alone. Standard homeowners insurance does not cover earthquake damage. Consider obtaining an earthquake insurance policy.
Brick homes, wood-frame homes with crawl spaces and multi-story homes are most at risk to suffer damage after an earthquake. It’s important to know that most companies will not start a new earthquake policy 30-60 days after an earthquake due to the expectation of aftershocks. Be prepared and consider adding earthquake insurance to your policy.
