California Disasters since 1990

California is subject to repeated disasters...but people are not prepared, according to a 2006 poll.

Californians believe that their state is prone to disasters, but see little motivation to prepare for nature's crushing blows, a 2006 poll has found.

Roughly half of the respondents in Los Angeles, Bay Area, Sacramento and Central Valley regions described themselves as "not prepared at all" for wildfires.

The poll, sponsored by the Insurance Information Network of California and Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, found that only 22 percent of Californians consider themselves to be prepared or very prepared for a disaster in their area.

Between 1990 and 2006, California has had 32 natural catastrophes with damages totaling $19.43B.

Three earthquakes have accounted for $12.57B in damages
Wildfires accounted for $4.73B
Severe storms/flooding accounted for $2.13B
TOTAL OVERALL DAMAGE $19.43B
