Rose fault could cause widespread damage in the area of Intensity IX (“General panic. Cracked. About this site. Welcome to this site, created to help communities through the process of developing and using effective earthquake scenarios. These scenarios can be powerful planning tools that help communities understand and plan for the future, telling the story of a defined earthquake . A major earthquake within the densely populated San Francisco Bay area, such as the event postulated in this planning scenario or an equivalent event in the urban Los Angeles area, would constitute one of the most devastating natural disasters that could conceivably strike this nation. Seismic Hazards in the Reno-Carson City Urban Corridor Spring The Reno-Carson City urban corridor has one of the highest seismic hazards in the state of Nevada. Historical earthquakes are often the most convincing evidence of a local seismic hazard, and the Reno-Carson City urban corridor has had several damaging historical earthquakes.
and the Reno-Carson City corridor, east of the The moment tensors and centroid depths are estimated for eastern California and western Nevada earthquakes from regionally recorded long-period. Scientists are finishing the first phase of seismic surveying through downtown as part of a $1 million US Geological Survey study to create an earthquake hazard map in the Reno-Carson City urban. because they were prepared. We have had one major earthquake in the state since , the Wells, Nevada earthquake, which caused $11 to $15 million of damage in that community. Most of Nevada’s population has only experienced this seismically quieter period of Nevada’s history and the folklore of earthquakes in Nevada has been lost.

The area has the largest earthquake faults, some of the highest levels of recorded earthquake activity, and the highest slip-rates and geodetically measured deformation in the state, all indicating the high earthquake hazard.
