Could Mass. See Another Big Earthquake Like the one in 1755 on Cape Ann?

With the ancient Ramapo Fault running near New York City, the Northeast still faces a high risk of an earthquake damaging our homes! Is buying earthquake hazard insurance something you'd consider, or at least look into? Let's not forget about the quake that occurred in Maine on October of 2012 that was felt all over New England.
