Why should Kentuckians consider earthquake insurance?

Kentucky is one of 16 states at the highest risk for earthquakes, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). The western portion of Kentucky sits on the most active fault in the central and eastern United States (the New Madrid Seismic Zone). This zone is a source of continuing small and moderate earthquakes, and, according to experts with the USGS, it could pose a risk "for a major destructive earthquake" in the future.
