APCIA Urges Americans to Consider the Earthquake Potential in their Area

Earthquakes often strike with little to no warning, and it is essential to be prepared. According to the American Red Cross, 45 U.S. states and territories are at moderate to very high risk of earthquakes. However, even in the most earthquake-prone states relatively few people have earthquake insurance.

Earthquake damage is not covered under a standard homeowners insurance policy and must be purchased as a separate policy. This leaves a major gap in insurance coverage for many homeowners and businesses.

Know your risk and talk with your insurance agent or company about earthquake coverage today. After considering your need for earthquake coverage, take the time to make a home inventory to document all your belongings.

By purchasing earthquake insurance and making a home inventory, you can ensure your family is prepared for the recovery process when the earth shakes.
