Earthquake Bay Area Prediction
The probability for California having a large earthquake in the next 30 years can now be forecast statewide. Based on extensive post-earthquake evaluations, experts agree that structural damage can be greatly reduced by following recommended practices of seismic strengthening and earthquake retrofitting.
Earthquake prediction is a branch of the science of seismology concerned with the specification of the time, location, and magnitude of future earthquakes within stated limits, and particularly "the determination of parameters for the next strong earthquake to occur in a region.
