Homeowners in adjacent states should consider earthquake insurance coverage, too.

Oklahoma, as one example, is not listed as an at-risk state. There have been years in which more earthquakes hit the Sooner State than California; including a massive earthquake that hit earlier this decade.

The majority of the United States is at risk for an earthquake, in fact. And, in low-probability areas, earthquake insurance can be cheap.

Homeowners and renters can bundle earthquake insurance with other insurance coverages such as homeowners, condo or automobile insurance to get a multi-line discount; and, to make sure they’re protected.

Coverage can cost as little as $50 per year.
