Texas Earthquake Insurance

Preparing For The Next Big Texan Shake

Even though history does not identify Texas as an earthquake prone state, recent earthquakes have many homeowners worrying about the well being of their homes. If you do not have an earthquake insurance policy, you will not be covered for any damages caused by the ground’s shaking. Therefore, it is wise to explore protecting your most important investment by learning more about this coverage.

Scientists are still trying to determine the cause of the recent earthquakes in Texas, but while they do, it is important that you keep the following earthquake preparedness tips in mind:

  • Stock your emergency kit so that it is locked and loaded should an earthquake occur. This kit should have a first aid kit, batteries, flashlights, water, nonperishable food, important family documents, emergency contact information, and a battery-operated radio.
  • Make sure to go through each room in your house with every member of your family to determine the safest exit routes.
  • Most importantly, store flashlights and sturdy shoes by each bed so that everyone is prepared should the unexpected occur.
