Earthquake insurance for at-risk businesses
Earthquakes are becoming more and more frequent in the 21st century. United States businesses in the West and in states like Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi are in the most danger because fault lines lie across those states. The natural disaster of an earthquake is unexpected and is predicted to increase in likelihood as more pressure occurs in the Earth's plates. Unlike a hurricane, you never know when an earthquake is coming.
The cost of earthquakes can inch close to a billion dollars per earthquake depending on the severity of its magnitude. In almost every earthquake, the majority of the financial loss is from businesses that do not have earthquake insurance coverage.
