Earthquakes happen, it’s only a matter of when. The damage from earthquakes can be catastrophic which is where earthquake insurance comes in. Homeowners insurance policies do not cover damages caused by earthquakes which is why you must purchase a separate policy if you seek coverage.
There are very affordable earthquake policy options, and as a resident of California it is definitely worth considering. Prices will vary depending on how close to fault lines your property is located, etc.

If the claim is covered it will also pay for any damages (up to the covered limit) that are awarded.
Loss of Use
When a major loss occurs and you are displaced from your house, this part of the policy pays for the cost of temporarily housing you in another location. Hotel bills, restaurant meals in excess of what you would have spent, laundry that you have to send out are covered during the rebuilding process.
