The Hayward Fault, running right through the UC Berkeley campus, has a 31% probability of rupturing in a magnitude 6.7 or greater earthquake within the next 30 years. (Source: UCERF 2008 report) Learn more about the Hayward Fault through these videos, presentations, and links.
The science behind earthquakes, from seismic waves to stress relief, ending with a dramatic east-bay earthquake scenario that is all too likely to happen.
