How bad was it? Put it this way – the Pentagon was evacuated and a news conference was cancelled in New York due to the tremors.
Earthquakes aren’t common in our state, so many people find themselves unprepared when one strikes. In fact, when a minor earthquake hit the DC-area last year, some people didn’t even know what was happening. Unfortunately, being caught off guard could also mean the appropriate insurance coverage is lacking.
Check Your Insurance CoverageThis recent earthquake has acted as a reminder to review your insurance coverage. Earthquakes tend to leave massive damage in their wakes and you don’t want to be caught off guard.
While you’re reviewing your earthquake coverage, why not give your auto insurance a quick glance? We have talked with too many people over the years who lacked the appropriate car insurance, specifically when it came to uninsured and under-insured motorist coverage. A slight increase in your premium could mean an additional hundreds of thousands of dollars in coverage.
