I heard on NPR that the Earthquake rider policy that you can add on to your insurance isnt that much but what gets you is the deductible. It can range from 5-15% of the home value. So its not very cost effective to have that. Its better to repair any light damage out of pocket unless your house is a total loss. I work in Las Colinas and I felt the 3.6 magnitude earthquake and it shook the whole building for two seconds. It comes in fast and you have any time to react. Thats the scary part.

rok8man, I work in Las Colinas too and they've been going off all day. The one around 2:30 definitely got everyone's attention.

Felt the 2.30 pm one in Dallas.

Is it only me who is a little worried about these?

I know we have not heard of damage yet but there is a also news of >4.0 magnitude earthquakes in OK, which as I understand has also seen a similar spurt in earthquakes recently.
