New USGS Maps Show Earthquakes, Coastal Erosion Could Be Worse Than Previously ThoughtStormy weather over the past few months has had an impact along the California coast that you can’t see from the shore, but scientists taking a close look at some new high resolution maps can, and what they’ve found is cause for concern.
Rodgers Creek Fault More Accurately Traced Through Part Of Santa RosaScientists at the U.S. Geological Survey now have a better idea of where exactly the Rodgers Creek Fault runs.
Magnitude 2.8 Earthquake Hits On Concord FaultThe U.S. Geological Survey is reporting an earthquake with a magnitude of 2.8 has struck in Concord.
Concord Fault That Saw 3.6 Magnitude Quake Has Potential To Do Major Damage To East BayThe Concord fault that shook to the tune of a 3.6 magnitude earthquake Sunday has the potential to do major damage in the East Bay.
The ‘Big One’ In California Could Trigger Other Large Earthquakes On Nearby FaultsThe research out of USC suggests that a major earthquake on the San Andreas Fault could trigger large earthquakes on other nearby faults, intensifying the damage over a larger area.
Ventura Earthquake Fault Puts California At Risk For Destructive TsunamiOfficials are considering revising tsunami hazard maps after researchers found the Ventura fault line in Southern California is much more dangerous than previously believed.
Magnitude 2.7 Earthquake Strikes Near East Bay RefineriesThe U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 2.7 earthquake has struck in the north East Bay.
Double Earthquakes On San Andreas Fault Rock California-Mexico BorderThe U.S. Geological Survey says two magnitude 4.0-plus earthquakes have struck on the California-Mexico border.
7.0+ Magnitude Mega-Quake Possible In Berkeley Hills As Seismic Movement Links Calaveras, Hayward FaultsSeismologists now believe the Hayward Fault is actually a branch of the Calaveras Fault, meaning the faults have a much greater destructive potential in the case of a simultaneous rupture, potentially triggering a tremor stronger than the 1989 disaster.
Predictions Claim Magnitude 8.0 Plus California Earthquake More Likely In Next 30 YearsThe probability California will experience a magnitude 8 or larger earthquake in the next couple of decades has increased, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
