Geology.com has put together an excellent overview of some of these issues related to home owners insurance and geologic hazards. It is a great resource for friends, relatives and associates looking to buy homes. Hopefully they will be able to recognize if there might be a potential risk, and seek out the services of a geologist or engineer before they put their investment at risk.
This is not the first time I’ve posted links to blog posts from the Ontario-geofish blog by Harold A. Some times I blatantly rip him off, but hopefully he doesn’t mind since I try to credit him whenever I post about an article he found. I guess he has more time for surfing since he’s retired! 🙂 Here are a couple of his recent posts that I found interesting. (Image by NASA)
