Understand and predict earthquake risk

Verisk offers solutions to help you manage risk from earthquake and other perils resulting from the earth's tectonic movement. Based on data from AIR Worldwide's Catastrophe Hazard Reports, you can determine the distance of a property to the nearest fault, the soil type, and landslide and liquefaction potential.

While rare, earthquakes have the potential to cause devastating damage quickly—and not just on the West Coast. In fact, AIR analysis of historical U.S. events determined earthquakes that occurred in Missouri and South Carolina would be the first and third costliest earthquakes ever if they were to recur today.

In addition to offering data about earthquake risk in every state, Verisk also offers tools for insurers in Hawaii to determine if a property is located in a Tsunami Evacuation Zone or in a lava-flow hazard zone.
