"Allstate was the one company that was the exception to this rule. Any water that comes in contact with the ground and then enters the home is classified as 'ground water', according to Allstate. This is reason enough for them to deny a claim. Other insurance companies view the sprinklers as part of the plumbing of the home, and would extend coverage if a sprinkler pipe broke and caused damage to the inside of the home, provided the water entered through a window well or stairwell and not through the foundation."

Hundreds of earthquakes hit Nevada, intensify

A swarm of hundreds of earthquakes in Nevada has intensified recently, prompting experts to warn people to be ready in case larger ones hit.

Starting in July, some 750 earthquakes, mostly magnitude 2.0 to 3.0, have struck a corner of the Nevada desert near the Oregon border, according to several reports. Scientists believe groundwater is slowly percolating along the faults and building up pressure, making movement on the faults much easier, the Los Angeles Times reported.
