Who needs flood or earthquake insurance? Flood is the most common uninsured property loss because flood is excluded by most property policies, the damage water can cause is underestimated, and people usually will not buy flood insurance unless required to by a lender.   A series of large quakes occurred throughout northeast Arkansas in 1811 and 1812 and are predicted to occur again. North central Arkansas has felt smaller quakes. Damage occurred near Little Rock in 1969. We recommend all consider flood and earthquake coverage.
