Earthquakes and Home Insurance

Are you asking yourself this question:  Are earthquakes covered on my home insurance?

Certainly with Sunday's earthquake in Massachusetts, you would have good reason to ask.  According to Boston.com, it was the strongest earthquake to hit New England in decades.

Chris Besse, a spokesperson for MEMA (Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency) said that although there were no reports of injuries, there were reports of some structural damage to buildings in New Bedford.
