California Earthquake Authority: Be prepared, where you live

ABC7 has partnered with the California Earthquake Authority, one of the world's largest providers of residential earthquake insurance, to help keep your family safe.

Earthquake risk is real in California, and all Bay Area communities face the risk of damage and loss from a devastating quake. Scientists say there is a 99.7% chance a magnitude-6.7 or greater earthquake will strike somewhere in California, and a 76% chance a magnitude-7.0 or greater earthquake will strike in Northern California.

In other words, it's not a matter of "if," but a matter of "when."

ABC7 has partnered with the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) to help keep your family safe. CEA encourages California homeowners, mobilehome owners, condo unit owners and renters to reduce their risk of earthquake damage and loss through education, mitigation, and insurance policies to help repair and rebuild damaged homes, and replace valuables and personal belongings.
