For many Californians, cost of earthquake insurance outweighs the risks

Red tape surrounds a home damaged by Sunday's magnitude 6.0 earthquake in NapaBy Deepa Seetharaman, Robin Respaut and Christina Farr NAPA Calif (Reuters) - During Sunday's 6.0 magnitude earthquake, some $75,000 worth of bottles of wine, rum and whiskey flew off the shelves of Aiyaz Masani's liquor store in Napa, California. "It's useless to buy insurance." In one of the most quake-prone areas of the world, the cost of earthquake insurance remains too high for many California residents. Flood coverage is often more affordable and mandatory in areas of the country where hurricanes are frequent, but only 6 percent of Napa's residents carried coverage before Sunday's quake, the biggest to hit the Bay Area in 25 years and the first major quake in the state in two decades. A repeat of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, estimated at 7.8 magnitude, would cause some $93 billion in insured losses, according to an estimate by the Insurance Information Institute, an industry research group.
