As we pointed out in our blog, New England might be susceptible to an earthquake similar in magnitude to those that struck New Zealand and Japan in 2011. To reiterate:
The bottom line is that this area is more susceptible to earthquakes than you might think. And from our standpoint, it is equally important that you know that a standard homeowner’s insurance policy does not provide earthquake coverage. You need a special policy rider to cover damage to your dwelling and possessions should an earthquake occur. If these have concerned you and you would like to learn more about earthquake coverage options, please do not hesitate to contact H&K Insurance Agency today.
