Warning: North Carolina Homeowners Insurance Does Not Cover Damage From Earthquake and Ground Movement!
Did you know that an earthquake fault line runs straight through the heart of North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad?
August 23, 2011
A magnitude 5.9 earthquake centered near Blacksburg, VA about 73 miles from Winston Salem, NC caused damage to homes and buildings. Unfortunately, much of the damage is not be covered by homeowners insurance and many business owners insurance policies. This unpredictable rare event on the US eastern seaboard is often times overlooked when insuring property.
About 5,000 earthquakes strike the United States each year. Earthquakes have caused damage in all 50 states since 1900. Although here in North Carolina, damage from earthquakes is not as catastrophic as other parts of our county and the world, an earthquake can cause a major or total loss. A home may be damaged to the point that it is unsafe and no longer habitable. Without an earthquake coverage endorsement, no insurance coverage is provided.
Fortunately for North Carolina property owners, earthquake coverage is very inexpensive. Depending on the age, construction type and location, it can cost less than $200 a year. This can give you excellent peace of mind for that rare but devastating event that can cost you your home or business.
