Perhaps the most remarkable feature of yesterday’s Mw=7.9 mainshock was the occurrence of a M=5.6 earthquake 180 km (110 mi) to the southwest of the mainshock, just 15 minutes after the mainshock struck.
A personal solution to a global problem
Half of the world’s population lives near active faults, and so could suffer earthquake damage. Most do not know they are at risk; many of the rest do too little, too late.
Temblor enables everyone in the continental United States, and eventually the world, to learn their seismic hazard, to determine what most ensures their safety, and to decide what best reduces their risk.
Earthquake maps, soil liquefaction, landslide zones, cost of earthquake damage
In our web and mobile apps, Temblor estimates the likelihood of seismic shaking and home damage. We show how the earthquake damage or its costs could be decreased by buying or renting a seismically safe home, securing fragile objects inside your home, or retrofitting an older home.
Temblor.net is free and ad-free. Please share with your friends and family to help our mission to live stronger together.
