Earthquakes are unpredictable, but given the geologic settings in the Southeast, the United States Geological Survey estimates strong magnitude earthquakes are a possibility. Many homeowner policies do not cover earthquake damage, but even small earthquakes can cause cracks in the foundation, structural damage, or knock fixtures from the walls.
- Southeastern U.S. averages 60 earthquakes per year
- Shock waves of a large magnitude earthquake in the Southeast would affect a larger area and cause greater damage than a similar quake on the West Coast.
- There are 4 major earthquake seismic zones across the Southeast
