San Ramon Earthquake Swarm (California) :

San Ramon Earthquake Swarm

Microearthquakes continue to occur near San Ramon, California. Since the
swarm began on Tuesday October 13, 2015, at 8:50am local time with a
magnitude 0.8 earthquake, the Northern California Seismic Network (NCSN)
has located 242 earthquakes in the region beneath San Ramon. The largest

The Pacific Northwest Earthquake Risk webinar from last Friday is now

Communicating Cascadia's Earthquake Risk

The direct to the webinar link via YouTube :

Geoscience research is at the forefront of characterizing the earthquake
risks associated with the Cascadia subduction zone in the Pacific
Northwest. This webinar will inform listeners of the science and its
implications for policy decisions and resiliency efforts. During the
webinar, the three presenters will provide an overview of what we know
about the Cascadia subduction zone and the associated earthquake risk, how
this information is used to guide policy decisions, how the science should
be communicated, what state and local governments are doing to address the
risks, and what more could be done to better protect the Pacific Northwest.

Our speakers include:
Chris Goldfinger, Oregon State University
Jeff Rubin, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue
Tom Brocher, Earthquake Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey

This webinar is cosponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey, Western States
Seismic Policy Council, and the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory
