    Summary Recent earthquakes and tsunamis in 2004 and 2006 have led some Members of Congress to question whether the federal government should be involved in providing disaster insurance against mega-catastrophes. On October 15, 2006, a magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, causing widespread disruption in electrical power and communications, landslides, sinkholes, and damaged buildings and roads. There were no fatalities. According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), this recent earthquake was the strongest to strike Hawaii since another magnitude 6.7 struck in 1983. Aftershocks were still being felt as late as March 2005 following the December 26, 2004, earthquake that struck six miles below the surface of the Indian Ocean on the northern tip of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The 2004 earthquake spawned a massive tsunami that smashed the coastlines of 12 countries in South Asia and East Africa, resulting in over 280,000 people dead or missing and significant economic and non-economic damages. Insured losses were relatively low compared to the tens of billions of dollars of economic and non-economic losses because few residential and commercial buildings were insured. Although tsunamis pose some risk to coastal communities around the world, they occur infrequently in the United States. The communities at risk are along the U.S. West Coast, Alaska, and the Pacific Region (Hawaii, America Samoa, Guam, the Republic of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of Marshall Islands). In contrast, most Americans live in areas considered "seismically active" - although the degree of earthquake risk varies greatly - and the areas with the potential for the most seismic activities are the Pacific coast, the Mississippi valley around New Madrid in Missouri, Alaska, Utah, South Carolina, and the New England region centered around Boston. In the aftermath of the 2004 Indonesian tsunami and America's continued vulnerability to seismic hazards, including the 2006 Hawaiian earthquake, Members of Congress might elect to focus attention on the vulnerability of the U.S. coastlines to offshore earthquakes and tsunamis, and the potential effects of a major earthquake on both the homeowners' insurance market and the overall U.S. economy. Congress has debated the vulnerability of America's coastlines to earthquake and tsunami hazard risks, leading to legislative action following the April 1992 California earthquake/tsunami and the 1964 earthquake/tsunami at Alaska's Prince William Sound. Although a federal flood insurance program was eventually enacted in 1968 in response to the 1964 earthquake, it took Congress another decade to address the nation's exposure to earthquake hazards with the enactment of the Earthquake Hazard Reduction Act of 1977. Congress did not create an explicit federal earthquake insurance program, albeit the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program was established in 1992. Some insurance and disaster policy experts suggest the time has come to implement a federal insurance or reinsurance program for earthquakes and other seismic risks. Conversely, other experts question the need for such a program. This report will be updated as events warrant.
