Earthquake Insurance Information
In 2019, two California earthquakes caused around $200 million in property damage. California usually gets two to three large earthquakes each year, capable of causing thousands or millions of dollars in damage. Homeowners are the most at danger to these earthquakes, as expensive damage and extreme loss is difficult to come back from without a wealthy savings account.
What most homeowners don’t know is that earthquakes aren’t covered under basic home insurance policies. Homeowners are often blindsided after they file a claim and it’s rejected because their policy doesn’t have the coverage they thought it did. Thankfully, you can purchase a separate earthquake insurance policy.
