Southern California Earthquake Serves as Reminder of the Threat
APCIA Urges Americans to Take Action by Considering Earthquake Insurance


The 7.1 and 6.4 Ridgecrest earthquakes serve as a wakeup call not only for California, but all Americans. While the possibility of an earthquake exists in every state, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming are at highest risk.

APCIA reminds all of us that advance preparation, both physically and financially – with adequate insurance – is the key to earthquake recovery. Talk with your insurance agent or company about earthquake coverage, gain a better understanding of how your policy works, and consider additional coverages that can make a significant difference following a natural disaster.

APCIA also has many resources and its Earthquake Preparedness Toolkit, which provides the steps to take before, during and after an earthquake.
