About the Quake Summit

Experts say that the New Madrid Seismic Zone, the largest active zone in the U.S. east of the Rocky Mountains, is at risk for a major earthquake. However, earthquake insurance coverage in the highest risk areas of the New Madrid seismic zone has dropped dramatically in recent years, widening the gap between the insured and the uninsured. This leaves states with a significant challenge as they look at planning for a successful recovery following an event in which the economic losses are expected to reach $300 billion. 

This Summit, for the first time, brings together the insurance industry, regulators, government officials and emergency management professionals to forge new ideas to begin “closing the gap.” Join leading innovators and visionaries as they meet to start conversations geared to solve this critical issue.
