A Direct Hit in Los Angeles Would Create Catastrophic Damage

JoTo PR Client, Sentry Claims Group, was featured in an article in The M Report titled, Shaky Outlook for Earthquake Insurance

MReport_logo_final_bluedktaupThe July 4th weekend in Ridgecrest, California, was met with a series of quakes that rattled rural western California, along with sections of Nevada and Arizona.

While these quakes posed no immediate danger to many residents, Steven Steckler, President of Sentry Claims Group, said the July 4 tremors brought attention to the issues surrounding earthquake insurance and how technology is used to track them.

According to information provided by Steckler, the San Andreas fault in California experienced 307 earthquakes during a 24-hour period in August, and there is a 31% chance a 7.5-magnitude earthquake strikes Los Angeles.

“We were lucky this time … You felt some shaking in some of the outer suburbs of Los Angeles. But it was nothing like it would be if it was a direct hit. That would be catastrophic,” Steckler said.
