It is important to be aware of the areas of the country most affected by natural disasters and what time of the year they normally occur. The most common disasters are; earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, hail, floods and forest fires.
Starting a new career as an Insurance Claims adjuster, you may want to consider relocating to a more central location. Typically on a deployment you are given 48 hours to be at the designated area. So if it is a cross-country drive, there’s not going to be any time for sleep!

The states that have the most natural disasters are; Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Missouri and California. Do keep in mind, that a consideration in choosing adjusters for a deployment is not your close proximity to the target area! However, if you live in Seattle and the deployment is in Florida, you could be passed over in favor of an adjuster living in Georgia.
