Earthquake Insurance

A Lot Of Californians Have Bought Earthquake Insurance In 2017

Up until recently, only about ten percent of residents in California had earthquake insurance.

Such a low percentage of people invested in it, despite the fact that California has a history of serious earthquakes. Images and video footage of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake testify to this fact. It was a magnitude 6.9 earthquake that caused 63 deaths and $5.6 to $6 billion in damages. The media showing crushed and collapsed buildings, cars and bridges are shocking.
