FACT: We have had 393 earthquakes in the San Francisco Bay Area in the last 12 months.

Extreme weather like the recent hurricanes and flooding in Houston and Florida, the earthquakes in Los Angeles and Mexico City, and fires throughout Los Angeles, Washington and Oregon will get increasingly common according to new scientific research.

Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, floods, and fires... how do you manage the risks of these and other natural catastrophes and their impacts on your real estate investment portfolio?
