EARTHQUAKES: Six things for Northwest residents to know about preparation, response and insurance

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

A series of earthquakes have struck southern California in recent days, causing injuries, damage to buildings and triggering at least one landslide. Washington and Oregon face the possibility of a major earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone - which stretches from British Columbia to Northern California - and Northwest residents are urged to be prepared in case a major quake strikes closer to home.

Here are six quick things NW Insurance Council wants Washington, Oregon and Idaho residents to know about earthquake safety planning, response and insurance:

Standard Homeowners insurance, Renters, Condominium or Business Owners policies do not include coverage for damage from an earthquake or other earth movement (such as landslides or sinkholes), or flooding from a tsunami, but separate coverage is usually available. Check with your insurance company, agent or a specialty carrier such as GeoVera to find out about your earthquake and earth movement coverage options.

Flood Insurance is available through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and may also be available from insurance companies in your area. Check with your agent or insurance company for more details on how you can protect your investment in your home or business against the devastating effects of an earthquake, landslide or tsunami.

Damage to vehicles caused by earthquake or tsunami is covered if owners add optional Comprehensive Coverage to their auto policies.

A complete home inventory of your possessions will help you and your insurance company get through the claims process more quickly.

It’s essential to have a home or business safety plan, and to store food (for humans and pets), water, medicines and other essentials to last at least 3 days.

When an earthquake strikes, remain indoors and use the internationally recognized protocol: “Drop to the ground, Cover by getting under a sturdy desk or table and Hold on until the shaking stops.”

Arson and Vandalism

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff


Last Monday and Tuesday, there was been an arson and vandalism at Westhill Elementary and Sorenson. The arson was contained to a dumpster and the playfield, while the buildings had some graffiti. Cleanup and repairs resulting from this crime will require the unnecessary use of district labor and taxpayer dollars.

If you know anything about these incidents please contact Bothell Police at 425-486-1254. The case numbers for these incidents are: 19-13368 and 19-13312. You can also use our SafeSchools anonymous reporting tool:
