Earthquake Insurance Information
Every year in the state of California, there are two or three earthquakes that are large enough to cause moderate structural damage. The risk of earthquake damage is so prevalent that many homeowners insurance policies don’t provide coverage for losses or damage related to earthquakes. Consequently, in order to be properly protected against earthquake risks, you typically must purchase an earthquake policy.
