For anyone else interested in becoming more acquainted with earthquake events and learning about faults near you, I suggest checking out:

https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/

If you click the gear icon in the top right, a menu will pop up on the right. You can scroll down on there and click the checkbox next to "US Faults" to see specific faults, or "US Hazards" to see a general color guide indicating earthquake risk. Everyone should be aware and have basic preparation tasks done if they live in a risk zone. We all know about "the big one" expected in California or Washington state, but even states like Missouri have high risk areas and have produced some powerful earthquakes!


I wonder if this map includes fracking related earthquakes and risks from them in the risk map?


> California or Washington state

Western Oregon, too.


True. And coastal Oregon has a legitimate threat of tsunamis triggered by earthquakes as well.


There was a 3.5 magnitude quake in the South Bay Area Monday.
