I doubt you have a policy that only covers fire. "Fire Policies" are really "Dwelling Policies" as they are called today. That is, they insure the dwelling alone and not any personal contents. They usually have named perils. So you either need to read the perils insured against and see if one is earth quakes or speak to your agent.



You really should not buy a policy unless you understand what it covers.

And if they don't have named perils (because it is an "all risk" policy), then there will be one or two pages of named exclusions, which is where you might find "earthquake" or "earth movement" listed.



If your home/dwelling is damaged by fire, even if caused by the effects of an earthquake, it could be covered. An example would be the Loma Prieto earthquake in San Francisco in the late 1990s. Many properties relatively undamaged by the earthquake were destroyed by fire that originated elsewhere (in a neighbor's home) and the fire department was unable to stop the fire from spreading. Where the insurance would not have paid for earthquake-induced damage to the property, the fire coverage did.

There are many examples of companies selling fire policies which cover only fire, lightning and removal, just like the original 165 line fire policy. As I noted in another thread, there are 3 options, Fire and Lightning; Fire, Lightning and EC; and Fire, Lightning and EC and V & M M .

Let's actually answer the OPs question, shall we?



The simple answer is "no, it won't."



Earthquake is specifically excluded in homeowner contracts, and if coverage for that peril is desired, it must be added through an endorsement to the policy, for additional premium. As well, it's extremely unlikely that you have a policy that JUST covers fire, as mentioned previously.



First of all, I'm assuming that you have a mortgage on the property. There isn't a lienholder in the world that would accept "fire only" coverage as satisfactory coverage in order to protect the mortgagee's interests in the loan. If there's no lien on the property, you can have any coverage you'd like on the property.



As to your question:

Property insurance tends to look for what's called the "proximate cause" of the loss to determine any additional coverage that might come into play. The proximate cause, keeping it simple, is the "originating" cause, which in your question, would be the earthquake. Certain states are slowly starting to unravel this concept, but it's still alive and well.



If the proximate cause isn't covered, then ensuing damage cause by the (now excluded) loss wouldn't be covered, either. Now, there are some exceptions to this, but those wouldn't likely come into play with your issue.



For example, let's say that the wind ripped the roof and underlayment off of your home, and as a result of the wind damage, rain entered into your dwelling and ruined your furniture. Since the wind damage is a compensbile loss, the ensuing damage to your furniture would likely be covered as well.



Hopefully, this makes sense!

I agree that the doctrine of proximate cause should be considered, however,I have been to seminars for major carriers where it is virtually ignored. Specifically wiith regards to earthquake, ensuing fire was deemed to be a covered loss even though the underlying proximate cause is earthquake. They also included glass breakage. I first encountered this ignoring of proximate cause in the 1970's while working a hurricane. Fences and awnings were not covered for the peril of wind back then However, if a tree was blown onto either, it was considered a falling object, which is covered. The claim was then paid.

In fire claims, there could be a number of factors that contribute to the proliferation of the fire, each of which could be deemed a proximate cause of the loss. For example, a gas line that is not installed or manufactured correctly might be more sensitive to an earthquake rendering it more susceptible to a fire than is necessary. Similarly, fire suppression equipment could also fail, allowing the fire to spread to a greater area tan had it been working. Recently, I litigated a case where a defective heater caused an electrical fire, on top of that defect an independent fire detection and sprinkler system also failed due to an installation defect, finally the electric company failed to notify the homeowner of abnormal spikes in usage in the preceding months which could have alerted them to the electrical problems with the heater. All three failures contributed to the loss, had any one event not occurred the loss could have been mitigated. This kind of illustration is not uncommon in fire claims. Typically more than one thing goes wrong. The point is, don’t just write off the cause of a fire as a natural disaster, have an expert take a close look at how and why the fire spread in the manner it did. There could be more than one proximate cause of the loss.

Very true. If the house doesn't burn, but is otherwise destroyed by the earthquake, the insurer is going to be off the hook when the insured doesn't have a companion earthquake policy.



Matches -- a very important part of every earthquake survival kit.

How MySpace is profitable



proper, scientifically, Everyone on MySpace is in your made bigger Network, Because when you create a profile, MySpace co founder Tom Anderson is right away added to your Friend Space. all of us are connected through Tom. to educate yourself regarding your Extended Network, You can go to checklist of supplies friends' profiles, See who's in uncle Space, Click on a picture to visit the people's profiles, See who's in that person's Friend Space and work your way down the line. (It's definitely not of the best ways to play the Kevin Bacon game once you take Tom out of the equation.) You can request to add one to your Friend Space, And if your party invite is accepted, You can send that individual e mail, messages, Links to a band you discovered in MySpace Music and anything more you might share with your friends. Music stage. Bands used it to establish a free online presence to post performance dates and connect with their fans. as 2004, MySpace became a full fledged Internet indie music portal with the coming of MySpace Music, A subsectirelating to with regards to MySpace. The new area let bands not only create an online presence, But also stream their music through their MySpace user profiles and let people download MP3s of their songs, All free. This attracted even more music artists and bands, and also demographic most known for consuming music: Teenagers and as well 20 somethings.



And exactly what do teenagers and 20 somethings desire most? Many would tell you it's freedom to go to town without censorship, And MySpace got it right in this area. the particular sole things MySpace censors is hate speech and extreme nudity (yow will discover some bare breasts and buttocks, but that is about it). It's more accessible and more personalized than any networking site that came before it. Users can also add music, video media, design, New fonts and crazy layout schemes within their profiles. They can use graphics and video files that are hosted elsewhere. typically the "Do what you require, do not care" Attitude are a wide draw for 16 to 25 year olds (And all the others except their parents, possibly). everyone is able to access full profiles, Even if they haven't registered, And they don't have to have any particular affiliation (With a school, Business or attention) To use the web site.



as a result, If MySpace is for anyone, Who is largely using it? Sixteen to 25 year olds make up a good number of MySpace users, And 25 percent of users are professional as minors (Aged 14 to 17 conscious at least 14 to register). But you will discover people of all ages using the site for all reasons. There are kids who are clearly about 12 lying about their age because MySpace is where to be. There are 30 somethings looking to meet people because it's hard to make friends once you're out of grad school, 50 somethings embracing the online networking trend to find new business associates, And 70 somethings hunting for a date. You can switch up all of those ages and purposes. one can find people looking to publish their poetry online or advertise and accept orders for their latest book through their profile page. Unsigned bands use the site to obtain their music out there and build a following. established artists like Madonna, The schokohrrutige Eyed Peas, Audioslave and Billy Corgan use the site to communicate with fans and get feedback on tracks. Instead of owning and maintaining its own DNS servers, MySpace works on a "manipulated DNS" plans called UltraDNS. UltraDNS basically handles user IP requests during a huge network of servers, Distributing the load based on which servers are available at this time. They deliver cached content to users to limit redundant requests to MySpace's job servers. (A terabyte is normally 1 trillion bytes.) The cluster stores users' downloaded media files (designs, media, songs), amongst other things. It operates on 3.2 GHz Intel Xeon processors and russian sexy girls has 10 server nodes storing 1.92 TB almost every. The nodes communicate on the InfiniBand architectural mastery, Which figures out point to point, Serial connections in between each server node. A server switch facilitates heart to heart talks between multiple severs on multiple platforms in this case, Between all of the servers in the MySpace system and between the MySpace servers and the external servers that deliver content to the end user. The Equinix Exchange central server switch in seminole florida hosts MySpace's content delivery. Equinix Exchange is an Ethernet based peering service that connects MySpace to all of the top tier Internet backbones by a single hub a "small cloth" Of server switches attaching all Equinix networks. Content travels from MySpace through any of the Equinix connected networks based on the most efficient route to the user and the available bandwidth on a network at any given time.



The setup seems to focus on maximum efficiency and load daily monetary service to minimize downtime and delays. But MySpace has more visitors than Google and a lot less capital (at least before Murdoch stepped in), And swift, Round the clock content delivery to millions of users simultaneously requires a lot of cash. The two largest infusions of capital developed in 2003, When MySpace received an undisclosed stretch of funding from Intermix Media (Which bought 53 percentage point of MySpace), plus in 2005, anytime you are MySpace got $11.5 million through an agreement between Intermix and Redpoint Ventures (Which bought Redpoint's 25 per cent of MySpace). It began as social networking site like Friendster. that same year, Industry leader Friendster had a major technology setback it couldn't keep up with its more visitors. During peak hours, this website slowed to a crawl, Or users got DNS errors and couldn't access this website at all. Tons of Friendster users got fed up and ended up migrating to MySpace through the grapevine, Which began with the founders' own friends and MySpace job seekers, nicely some media promotion through Intermix, private information that owned a controlling share in MySpace at the time. When Anderson and DeWolfe remarked that musicians and music fans were utilizing MySpace more than any other single group, They specifically created MySpace Music, And the site's traffic skyrocketed.



for this reason Tom Anderson, President and co founder of it. for you to create her network of friends, Ellie can invite her current friends to join and search for any friends who are generally on MySpace. she will search by name or e mail address, And MySpace lets her import her entire e mail addresses book from Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and Gmail to automatically scan for an address with a MySpace account. Other search methods are by school association (Find people you go/went to high school or college with colleges already have their own sections on MySpace) Or by business organization.



But however industry, It's changing the record companies in a real way. Bands like Hawthorne height, My Chemical Romance and Arctic Monkeys allow us huge followings and garnered record label attention via the Internet and MySpace in particular. Through password manager "Guerrilla web marketing" devices, The Arctic Monkeys let go of a single that landed at No. 1 on the UK Music Chart prior to the band's debut album even hit the shelves. My Chemical Romance has sold above 1 million copies of its 2004 debut CD, And Hawthorne Heights has sold regarding green half million copies of its debut CD released the same year. every one of them bands are now signed with record labels, But they'd built a tremendous fanbase on google (And sold dozens of CDs) Before they discussed contracts, Giving them now more leverage than an artist with a small local following who's discovered by an A rep at a gig.



In about one known case so far, A band's MySpace profile led instantly to a record deal. A disconcerting California band called Hollywood Undead popped up on MySpace in June 2005. inside a week, It wasn't any.4 on the MySpace music chart along 65,000 loyal fans in its Friend Space. Six months subsequently, Hollywood Undead signed with an all new indie record label: MySpace court records. The MySpace record label is completing a partnership between MySpace and Interscope Records. It operates as an indie label but relies on Interscope for retail and industry contact lenses. MySpace ceo Tom Anderson is creative director and head of A for MySpace Records. the prettiest thing about the whole setup is how the label finds its artists: through the MySpace artist ranking system and user feedback. MySpace Records' first release was a compilation album called "MySpace specifics, Vol.1, In december 2005. It features unsigned artists and artists signed for some other labels, All with a field of vision on MySpace. Hollywood Undead's debut album is planned for release between 2006.



According to MySpace workers, The company dedicates one third of its 175 person workforce to policing profiles for errors, Although it's unclear whether that began before or after the media started having a debate about MySpace as "A parent's headache, These employees seek age discrepancies (Matching stated ages with movies), Other introduction "error" And inappropriate material that could be accessed by underage users. our own MySpace "defense Tips" Section asks users to report MySpace users who are considered younger than 14. It also offers good advice that you'd find on any other social networking or internet dating Web site:



along April 11, 2006, MySpace announced that it had hired a former federal prosecutor to be its first ever chief security officer. But the cat's out of the bag. In the corporate advertising world, The great time-saver that your anonymous, Full of teenagers Web site is attracting sexual predators is most probably in the realm of catching Kate Moss with a straw in her nose sure, Nobody's genuinely stunned, But having proof is various story. MySpace has taken an active approach to solving its image problem by comfortably banning 29,000 listed sex offenders from the site.



MySpace's attraction has become somewhat of a phenomenon since its debut in 2003, And the brains behind the site are still trying to think up ways to attract new members and appease the existing ones. to fill out rising demand, MySpace has gone to great lengths in order to make social networking available to users wherever they happen to be. read that right MySpace has gone mobile. keep away from 2006, MySpace announced that it was integrating with AT formerly Cingular Wireless, or bring MySpace into the mobile world, And are various kinds of service options available.



AT customers can elect to receive MySpace Mobile Alerts, Which are SMS messages sent to a customer's phone when there are updates to any profile. in the, The text messages are free from MySpace, But other costs depend on the user's carrier plan. AT Mobile subscribers can opt to pay $2.99 a month for the MySpace Mobile work, which usually, After saving it a Java application, Allows users to upload photos, Post and view blogging, View fine friends, Send and receive e mail even more. But don't believe you're getting all of this for that flat rate. While the service is request based, cellphone plan data rates also apply. as an example, Estimates show that posting a photo from a 1.2 megapixel camera could cost everything $1.50, So if you're cheaply, You'll want to remember that. Myspace mobile service is also available on Helio brand devices. Helio, and is also backed by EarthLink and SK Telecom, Provides a custom job application for using MySpace, And most of its plans cover boundless data, So using MySpace comes at no extra bill for.



Given that people today crave immediate gratification, It comes as no great surprise that MySpace users want their alerts faster and easier. and thus, In order to keep its lots of users happy, MySpace referred to as launched its instant messenger function, MySpaceIM, always on June 20, 2007, Giving users another way to connect with their friends. MySpaceIM, A down loadable program, uses chat into the user's experience. Before the creation of MySpaceIM, MySpace users had to use other instant messenger performs, Such as basic AOL Instant Messenger (reach), to be satisfy their chatting needs, But now they don't have to.



Cerulean dojos, the organization that developed instant messenger client Trillian, Is supporting MySpaceIM with the release of Trillian Astra. MySpace is hopeful of making MySpaceIM work as smoothly as possible, So it also includes having a Pidgin plug in developed for the new IM. It logs onto MySpaceIM to an IM library called libpurple, And it needs to help iron out any of the kinks found after the test launch. the prerequisites for running MySpaceIM are Microsoft Windows (98/2000/XP/Vista) And internet explorer 5.0 or higher.



Many important and influential people have gone to extreme measures looking for young people interested in politics, But polling statistics have revealed that their efforts were mostly wasted. Now MySpace is trying its hand at making popular politics by introducing MySpace Impact. MySpace Impact is a political section of the site devoted to educating MySpace users on the field of politics. is really a popular site is international, the debate of MySpace Impact is on American politics. Adding MySpace Impact was one of site's most selfless endeavors, Given that the section is focused more on educating users and creating an online dialogue than it is on generating revenue.



MySpace sends Impact Awards, Which are divided into six categories worldwide Development, poverty Relief, Social proper rights, protection, Environmentalism and people building. Only one Impact Award is provided each month, And the subjects are user nominated. big event contest is under way, A user can vote for the group that he believes best serves the specific category. the corporation received $10,000, A monthlong link on the MySpace Impact local page, A mention in the monthly news letter and a MySpace wide bulletin announcing its victory. The winners' causes benefit greatly because of public exposure offered by MySpace.



MySpace's video sharing faculties have helped make the site the social networking giant that it is today. It is an international site that is available in 15 countries and seven languages. The site not only features user generated content and other online video lisenced users, although Sony Minisodes, Five minute clips of classic shows. Users can also create their own personalized channel pages. These easy to customize channels will allow users to save videos, information and playlists, And the channels may possibly be linked to a user's regular MySpace profile. MySpaceTV is for purchase to nonmembers, But only registered MySpace users will be able to upload content. Other MySpaceTV presents include:



Many bloggers and online video connoisseurs believe that MySpaceTV copied YouTube's format too closely. many MySpaceTV's page layout to its video organizational method is questionably similar to that of YouTube. Some people believe that MySpaceTV intentionally copied YouTube to have comparable success, But other people think that there really was no other way to generate the site. YouTube set up its site so perfectly that there was virtually no room for improvement and no chance to succeed without following its example. in either case, Both sites do party in similar ways.



MySpace NewsIn April 2007, MySpace introduced MySpace News. MySpace News is a news aggregator that takes algorithms and user ratings into mind. It draws news articles from reputable sources let alone from personal blogs, All in real time. MySpace users can submit online sites to the aggregator database, And the stories are then rated by users on the site. MySpace News engages its community by allowing users to rate and comment on the stories. Users can browse news items by common topics equivalent to sports, politics and travel, And benefits can be narrowed by location. Although it is far from being the site's most widely used section, MySpace News will doubtless grow in popularity, Especially as longtime users mature up. nearly everywhere MySpace has moved into more serious realms of media, Like news and the government, Is evidence of the site's desire to bring every aspect of the Web to one place.



favorite MySpace Comedy channel focuses more on commercial rather than user generated content, It still provides amateur comedians with great possibilities for networking. Dane Cook is a good example of the modern Internet comedian. Cook launched a profile for himself in late 2003. certainly MySpace Comedy wasn't yet up, Cook utilized the social networking of MySpace to get connected to his audience. Since Cook created his MySpace information, More than 2 million humans have added him as a "comrade.
