The U.S. Geological Survey predicts a catastrophic earthquake in California within the next three decades. The expected quake would somewhere in be on the scale of the 1906 earthquake that destroyed San Francisco. To put it another way, the quake would be 100 times more powerful than the 1994 Northridge earthquake, which has already cost more than $25 billion. Earthquakes and other natural disaster are a growing problem for victims and taxpayers who face the burden of paying for relief, regardless of where they live.
