The Hayward Fault Zone is a geologic fault zone capable of generating significantly destructive earthquakes.

 

This fault is about 74 mi long, situated mainly along the western base of the hills on the east side of San Francisco Bay.

 

It runs through densely populated areas, including the cities of RichmondEl CerritoBerkeleyOaklandSan Leandro,HaywardUnion CityFremont, and San Jose, in order from north-to-south.

 

The Hayward Fault is parallel to its more famous (and much longer) westerly neighbor, the San Andreas Fault, which lies offshore and through the San Francisco Peninsula.

 

In March 2015, the United States Geological Survey released "UCERF3: A New Earthquake Forecast for California's Complex Fault System." 

 

The upshot, for those who live in the San Francisco Bay Area, is that experts say there is a 72% chance of experiencing a magnitude 6.7 or greater earthquake in the next 30 years. Moreover, there have a 51% chance of a M≥7 (threshold to be considered a "major" quake),

The probability for an earthquake of magnitude 6.0 or greater is significant in the near future

We just had a 5.1 last week in Oklahoma.

Less than 100 miles from the Cushing Oil Hub!!!

Our tenuous existence and inability to control the uncontrollable is, I believe, the root cause of the neurotic anxiety disorders displayed by the current obsession with Climate Control.

 

They used to cut out human hearts to assuage the gods and cool the climate.

Now they just raise taxes on their victims.

According to KTUV, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake along the Hayward Fault could kill as many as 800 people and injure 18,000, according to results of a new research released Wednesday.

 

The U.S. Geological Survey, citing findings from a simulated tremor with an epicenter in Oakland, said the disaster would cause 400 fires that could destroy 50,000 homes. Nearly half a million people would be displaced, authorities said. 

 

If a 7.0 magnitude quake occurred like the one simulated, researchers say that the East Bay residents could be without water from anywhere between six weeks to six months. Electricity could be out for up to four weeks in some locations.

 

According to Business Insider, the statistical chances of this type of an earthquake occurring are not very comforting either. There’s about a 76% chance that the San Francisco Bay Area could experience a 7.2 magnitude earthquake within the next 30 years, according to some recent reports. 

 

“It’s just waiting to go off,” USGS earthquake geologist emeritus David Schwartz warned when speaking to the Los Angeles Times.
