San Francisco Earthquake Likelihood
Clustered around the 1,070-foot tower are a collection of high rises built on the soft soil and sand on the edge of the bay. They represent a bold symbol of a new San Francisco, but also a potential danger for a city that sits precariously on unstable, earthquake-prone ground.
The worst scenario for the next earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area is not from the San Andreas Fault, experts say, but from the Hayward Fault.
Bay Area earthquake history. Since 1836, there have been five earthquakes in the San Francisco Bay Area with a magnitude of 6.75 or higher.
The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake occurred in Northern California on October 17 at 5:04 p.m. local time (1989-10-18 00:04 UTC). The shock was centered in The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park approximately 10 mi (16 km) northeast of Santa Cruz on a section of the San Andreas Fault System and was named for the nearby Loma Prieta Peak in the Santa ...
San Francisco Bay Area residents have been shaken out of their slumber by a magnitude 4.4 earthquake that was felt over a wide area. The quake struck at 2.39am about 2 miles (3km) from Berkeley, just across the bay from San Francisco, according to the US Geological Survey.
Earthquakes in the San Francisco Bay Region result from the accumulation of energy as the Pacific Plate slides past the North American Plate. The fact that a devastating earthquake occurred in 1906 — the San Francisco earthquake — is common knowledge.
The most dangerous earthquake fault in the San Francisco Bay Area is connected to another - which means both could rupture simultaneously and unleash major devastation, a new study finds.
A 4.6-magnitude earthquake hit Monterey County in California on Monday morning—and it was felt as far as 90 miles away in San Francisco. The earthquake occurred near the San Andreas Fault at a depth of about four miles. No injuries or damage were reported, and as of Monday evening, the U.S ...
The 'Big One' is a hypothetical earthquake of magnitude 8 or greater that is expected to happen along the San Andreas fault. Such a quake is expected to produce devastation to human civilisation within about 50-100 miles (80-160km) of the quake zone, especially in urban areas like Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The Hayward Fault Zone is a geologic fault zone capable of generating destructive earthquakes.This fault is about 74 mi (119 km) long, situated mainly along the western base of the hills on the east side of San Francisco Bay.
