From Thursday evening to Friday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey recorded five earthquakes hitting 112 miles off the Southern Oregon coast near Port Orford.
The first earthquake struck at 9:10 pm and registered at 3.9 magnitudes. Almost 10 minutes later, a 4.1 magnitude earthquake struck the same region.
The third earthquake registered the larges out of the five with a 4.5 magnitude. The other two earthquakes struck near the Southern Oregon coast later in the night and were recorded at 3.8 and 3.5 magnitudes, respectively.
There’s no accurate way to predict exactly when a potential earthquake might occur. Homeowners who understand the threat of living in a seismically active region are taking proactive steps to prepare, including opting for earthquake insurance.
Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t qualify for earthquake insurance due to the age of their home. As homes get older, the expansive soil surrounding a home takes its toll on a foundation. Over time, older foundations are more prone to cracking and buckling, and that makes insurance companies less likely to insure a home against an earthquake.
However, with the proper retrofitting process, many homeowners will be able to secure their home to their foundation and obtain earthquake insurance. TerraFirma Foundation Systems has retrofitted hundreds of homes in Oregon and Washington.
Scheduling a free inspection of your home’s retrofitting needs is simple, and our experienced System Design Specialists will help you better understand your retrofitting options, and what you can do to protect the future of your home and family.
