Part of the work to develop this online tool included the identification of regions of comparable expected earthquake damage. Similar homes or buildings located in a particular Hazard Zone are equally likely, in our analysis, to experience damage due to an earthquake, so insurance companies – for example - might be expected to offer similar insurance coverage terms and conditions. However, the potential impact of a future earthquake should not be the only factor involved in the appropriate determination of insurance coverage terms and conditions. It is important for property owners and insurers to assess each individual property to determine its resilience and capacity to survive an earthquake – property-specific information that is not included in the assessment presented by using this tool.
The results obtained from this tool should be considered only as general and are to be used as information only. This tool is not designed or intended to replace more complete analysis of individual properties or advice from experts. Since each situation is different, contact a professional if you have questions about specific issues pertaining to seismic risk to a certain property or structure.
