Earthquakes cannot be predicted or prevented. However, you can opt for a home insurance policy to get covered against property damages arising from earthquakes. A valid home insurance policy can provide you with financial support to deal with the damage repair, renovation and rebuilding expenses.
India has experienced a number of earthquakes over the last century. Studies show that over 50% of India’s total area is prone to earthquakes. In fact, the entire north-eastern region, including the Himalayan belt, is at risk of experiencing earthquakes with a magnitude above 8.0.
With a clear understanding of the effects and causes of earthquakes, along with the safety measures and insurance options, we hope you will be able to deal with earthquakes in a better manner.
