Minimize Financial Hardship with Earthquake Insurance

The Great Shakeout is a gentle reminder to us that earthquakes happen. It is also a reminder for Californians to be prepared financially:

“If you own your home, it is probably your biggest single asset. You have worked hard to secure your piece of the American Dream by becoming a homeowner. But, in seconds, your dream can become a nightmare when an earthquake strikes and damages your home and personal belongings…it is likely your home will still have some level of damage, and you will need to repair or replace belongings. One option for managing these potential costs is to buy earthquake insurance.”

The Great Shakeout’s goal is to save both lives and property.

We know we can save lives, slow destruction, and protect property with training and preparation. Working together can make the damage less costly to our local communities.

What is the earthquake risk in your region?

We typically start to see significant property damage in earthquakes that are magnitude 5.5 and higher. Quakes that measure 6.0 or above will have major property damage, and magnitude 7.0 and above can cause severe damage and destroy entire communities.

Here is the probability that an earthquake will result in major property damage in your region (within the next 30 years, from 2014):

  • Los Angeles: 60% chance of experiencing a 6.7-magnitude quake
  • San Francisco Bay Area: 72% chance of experiencing an earthquake magnitude of 6.7
  • The Pacific Northwest: Capable of producing an upper-end magnitude scale earthquake measuring 9.0, plus a 37% chance of a megathrust earthquake of 7.1+ magnitude in the next 50 years

These regions are dangerously under-insured. On average, your community has just over 10% of residents protected with earthquake insurance. Why does this matter? Uninsured losses from earthquakes can devastate families, destroy businesses, and weaken communities. 

A devastating quake can strike your neighborhood today.

The risk of earthquakes and their financial toll should be top of mind for every homeowner in California, Oregon, and Washington. Unfortunately, standard Homeowners insurance policies do not cover earthquake damage, and FEMA grants don’t take the place of earthquake insurance. GeoVera Earthquake insurance fills a severe coverage gap that will quickly get you back on your feet.
