Earthquake in SC?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Liz Loadholt- AgentOwned Realty- Covering SC

Most of us who live in here don't even think about an earthquake in SC.  But, we should.

According to the SC Insurance News Service, the earthquake that devastated parts of Haiti last week was smaller than the quake of 1886 that caused widespread damage in SC.

Ninety percent of the  brick structures around Charleston SC were damaged in the 1886 quake, which was felt from Cuba to New York and from Bermuda to the Mississippi.

If you don't have earthquake insurance and you live in SC  especially the Charleston SC area, it is time to be looking into it.  It has been determined that most folks do not carry earthquake insurance.

Earthquake insurance covers the damage to a home and its contents caused by the movement of the earth.

Not that it can, but it will happen again here in SC -- will you be prepared?

Liz - I remember reading about fault lines in our area too. I think it is time to revisit where they are located for the reasons you point out in your post. California is not the only state that has earthquakes in the US. This is good advice. Nice post.

Liz - I did not know there was earthquake insurance. Worth a phone call to my insurance agent to see if I'm covered. Hopefully with all the churches in Charleston, The area will be spared for a much longer time.

You can never protect yourself too much, and I am sure that many here in South Carolina never think about earthquakes at all.

JL ---- so, that does your comment mean that you are covered?  If not, I hope that you will call your insurance carrier today and add it.

Terry ---- from what I have read, you are not safe --when a major earthquake hits an area, it can cause damage for thousand miles.
