Unfortunately, natural disasters have dominated the news lately.   Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas and Louisiana.  Hurricane Irma did the same to Florida.   Hurricane Maria severely damaged Puerto Rico.

On September 19th, Mexico City was rocked by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake,  causing massive property damage, and loss of life.   

In Southern California, we’ve had our share of natural disasters, also.   Primarily wildfires.  But, as we all know, we are also subject to the potential of a severe earthquake.    Most insurance policies cover fire damage, but not earthquake damage.  

The good news is that earthquake insurance has become more affordable and the coverage more comprehensive in recent years.    Earthquake policies can provide coverage for the Dwelling, your Personal Property, and Loss of Use.
