Did you know that there were more than 22,000 earthquakes worldwide last year? According to United States Geological Survey (USGS), more than 5,000 earthquakes occurred last year in the United States alone. Though more than half of the earthquakes within the United States had a magnitude of 3.0 or less, the cost for more serious earthquake recovery can be extensive.
As a business owner, it is imperative to consider the risks involved with natural disasters, including earthquake recovery. Most Americans believe that they are not at risk for earthquakes. Though Alaska and California are at the highest risk, 39 of the 50 states are believed to be at risk for an earthquake disaster, according to FEMA experts.
Earthquake recovery can be an overwhelming situation. Earthquakes have the potential to cause a wide array of problems including down power lines, collapsed structures, scattered dirt and yard debris, fires and more.
