Earthquake FAQ’s

I am assuming that the events of this morning may have left a few of you out there a bit “shaken.” Bad joke aside, I want to provide all of you out there some good information from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) web site so that you can take steps to prepare and handle any future tremors that may occur. Please see below for that.  USGS Map is to the right.

In the interim, you can view more on our little event here: Magnitude 3.6 - POTOMAC-SHENANDOAH REGION

Did you feel it?  Report shaking and damage at your location.

As I understand it, earthquake damage is a rider on many homeowner insurance policies. If you don't have the rider, you are not covered. An insurance agent may be able to verify this.

I know this is true with my insurance as I added an earth quake rider several years ago. My family sort of laughed at me at the time! : )

But I would suggest all folks check with their particular insurance agent to confirm.
