Earthquake Damage Facts From FEMA
Earthquakes strike suddenly, violently and without warning at any time of the year and at any time of the day or night.
- Smaller earthquakes often follow the main shock.
- An earthquake is caused by the breaking and shifting of rock beneath the earth's surface. Ground shaking from earthquakes can collapse buildings and bridges; disrupt gas, electric and phone service and sometimes trigger landslides, avalanches, flash floods, fires and huge, destructive ocean waves (tsunamis).
- Most earthquake-related injuries result from collapsing walls, flying glass and falling objects.
- Several thousand shocks of varying sizes occur annually in the United States, and 70 to 75 damaging earthquakes occur throughout the world each year. All 50 states and all U.S. territories are vulnerable to earthquakes. Where earthquakes have occurred in the past, they will happen again.
- California experiences the most frequent and damaging earthquakes; however, Alaska experiences the greatest number of large earthquakes—most located in uninhabited areas.
- Earthquakes occur most frequently west of the Rocky Mountains, although historically, the most violent earthquakes have occurred in the central United States.
- The Richter Scale, developed by Charles F. Richter in 1935, is a logarithmic measurement of the amount of energy released by an earthquake. Earthquakes with a magnitude of at least 4.5 are strong enough to be recorded by sensitive seismographs all over the world.
- It is estimated that a major earthquake in a highly populated area of the United States could cause as much as $200 billion in losses.
Many fault lines run through the United States, and if one of those ruptures causes an earthquake, your home could suffer extreme damage. The shaking and shifting of the earth could cause severe structural damage and rupture gas, water, and sewage lines in your home. Additionally, residents of coastal areas should maintain awareness of undersea earthquakes that could generate powerful tsunamis and subsequent tsunami damage. These walls of water move very quickly and carry momentum that can easily overwhelm protective barriers. The force, abruptness, and magnitude of the flooding caused by tsunamis can cause catastrophic damage to your home and the surrounding environment.
From structural problems to cracks and breakages caused by Mother Nature, we provide guidance and expertise to help you deal with the aftermath and safely restore your home. Our professionals work with you throughout the process to final restoration and are always there to answer any questions and ease any confusion. We work with you throughout the entire tsunami or earthquake recovery process, from day one to project completion. We even follow-up with you after restoration is complete to ensure no additional issues arise. That way, you can always have peace of mind.
