Earthquake Shock

Earthquake shock includes movement of the earth including volcanic eruption, landslide and snowslide which occur at the same time or directly result from an earthquake.

Earthquake coverage is not included in your usual property policies. It can be purchased. If you live in an area near a fault line there can be high deductibles and possible limited coverages. Once an area has suffered earthquake shock it will be very difficult to purchase insurance at that immediate time.

Discuss your options with your agent or broker and if you feel that your need justifies the expense, then purchase coverage for earthquake.
