Scenario for a Magnitude 7.0 Earthquake on the Hayward Fault

Scenario for a Magnitude 7.0 Earthquake on the Hayward Fault. 1995 Annual Meeting Committee, eds. Based on a special day-long symposium held at the EERI 1995 Annual Meeting, the report focuses on the multidisciplinary challenges of a major urban earthquake, using the northern Hayward fault as an example. It covers all aspects, from the social and economic setting of the San Francisco Bay Area, through geologic, seismologic, and engineering aspects, to the emergency response and recovery issues that will challenge government and industry in the months and years after the earthquake. The report contains original full-color maps and photographs that trace the rupture along the Hayward fault, graphically illustrating damage to specific bridges and highways, water and power systems, residential and commercial buildings and highlighting areas subject to landslides and ground failure. This fascinating document demonstrates how a scientifically credible scenario can be used to create awareness of, and gain support for, comprehensive programs to reduce earthquake losses. The report was made possible through support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. September 1996, 117 pp.
