Recent Quakes a Good Reminder to Double Check your Insurance


WEBWIRE – Monday, December 10, 2012

Bloomington, Ill, – The 5.8 magnitude earthquake that was felt in Anchorage on Dec. 3 is a firm reminder that there is a constant threat looming under Alaska.

Earthquakes are inevitable here and when the big one strikes recovering from the unexpected will be critical. One item that can make or break the recovery process is the proper insurance coverage.

A standard homeowners or business insurance policy does not cover damage caused by an earthquake. You must have an Earthquake endorsement added to the policy to ensure coverage of your home and business.
