The 150th Anniversary of the Damaging 1868 Hayward Earthquake:


  • The Hayward Fault in the heart of the Bay Area is one of the most urbanized faults in the US.
  • Studies of the fault reveal that it has produced 12 large earthquakes in the past 2000 years spaced 100-220 years apart.
  • There is nearly a 3 out of 4 chance of a damaging M6.7 earthquake in the SF Bay Area in the next 30 years.
  • Updated building codes, building and home retrofits, planning, and training are necessary to mitigate earthquake effects.
