Earthquake Risk Greater Than Previously Thought

In an effort to help us identify where earthquakes are likely to happen, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) updated the U.S. earthquake hazard maps this past summer – the first time since 2008.

California remains at high risk with strong earthquake potential extending over a wider area than previously thought with new faults discovered in San Jose, Vallejo and San Diego.  These updates have insurance companies reassessing rates and coverage.

Arrowhead General Insurance Agency, Inc. has been offering mono-line earthquake products to California homeowners since 2000.  Working with strong insurance carriers with A.M.
