From early warning systems that provide a 30-second countdown to robots that search for heartbeats above the rubble, here are six of the most innovative tools changing the way we think about earthquake safety.
More than half a dozen water mains ruptured in the East Bay on Monday, mostly in and around the areas affected by a magnitude 4.0 earthquake Monday morning
A 4.0 quake jolted the East Bay Monday morning just before 7 a.m.
The fault that produced a 4.0-magnitude earthquake in Fremont early Tuesday morning is expected to produce a major earthquake “any day now” and Bay Area residents should be prepared, a U.S. Geological Survey scientist said.
7.0+ Magnitude Mega-Quake Possible In Berkeley Hills As Seismic Movement Links Calaveras, Hayward Faults
Seismologists 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.
A magnitude 2.5 earthquake struck along the Hayward Fault in the East Bay Sunday evening.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported a magnitude 3.0 earthquake Saturday morning less than a mile northeast of Union City.
With a network of sensors spread across the UC Berkeley campus, scientists are hoping to get a clear picture — and sounds — of the Hayward Fault’s next big move.
A small quake registering 2.8 hit near Union City, along the Hayward Fault at 1:38 p.m. Friday afternoon, according to U.S. Geological Survey seismographs.
With a series of quick blasts and a cloud of dust a 13-story building on the Cal State-East Bay campus crashed to the ground Saturday morning as scientists monitored the impact on the nearby Hayward Fault.
