Are there any fault lines in northern California?

Are there any fault lines in northern California? Topic: Northern california research
July 16, 2019 / By Destinee
Question: I'm thinking of moving to California next year and am an east coaster. Thus, I am more scared of earthquakes than anything because I am not familiar with them at all, I'm less scared of tornadoes. Anyways, I am doing research on fault lines to try and steer as far away from them as I can. So far, maps I've found don't have any fault lines in northern California, but I thought they were literally everywhere in California. So, any advice on areas far away from fault lines would be so appreciated! Thanks in advance!

All of California is susceptible to earthquakes -- it's just that the most active and potentially most dangerous area is in Southern California along the San Andreas fault. See the attached link to the USGS seismicity map for California and you can see that earthquakes occur just about everywhere in California -- and that map is only for those since 1990. The link to the seisimic hazards map shows the likelihood of a major earthquake in a specific area of California. As you can see on that map, the area least likely to have an earthquake is Central California -- to the east of Sacramento. --- added comment: You are much more likely to die in an auto accident or be struck by lightning than you are to die in an earthquake - even in California!

It's both of your faults to be honest with you. Although your parents didn't teach you responsibility by making you do certain things as a child,I know you watch enough tv or seen one or two commercials on basic life skills...for example washing dishes,there's plenty of commercials for dish detergent with a sink full of dishes and a lady cleaning them even she doesn't clean every dish then she holds up the clean(spotless)dish after rinsing the suds off...or the Mr. Clean moping the floor with a bucket of clean water with his famous cleaning solution in the water...or the scrubbing bubbles commercial where the lady sprays the shower walls and tub,then she watches the scrubbing pads"wipe" the dirt away etc. Haven't you ever watch your mom do the dishes or laundry? I watched my my clean up everything and although I didn't participate when I was younger,but i swept,mopped, and cleaned the best way i knew how based on how i saw my mom do it and when I got tall enough to reach the sink I wash dishes. By 9yrs I was doin laundry by myself every other weekend when my mom had to work. So my mom taught me without teaching me,she never actually told me this is how it's done,just learn by watching. I also watch her cook even when she didn't think I was. I was cooking my own meals @10yrs when she worked late. I believe you do know those basic life skills it's in the nature. A lot of things in life are learned by doing it. Putting on clothes,taking a shower etc. Just put in the work and if you feel like you failed try again. You gotten this far in school because you put in the work right? because I know your parents didn't go to your classes for you and take your exams and walked across the stage to receive your diploma for you right? Go head and try...you can do it! It will only help you in the future. Good with college and good luck in general!

I'm not sure that you are caught up for college, maybe you should go to a community college close to your house so that you would not have to worry about doing the dishes etc, and also its kinda your fault because you could at least ask your parents to teach you these skills, you owe it to your self to learn these things because one day, you might be in a situation where there will be no mom and dad to help you. i had to learn to do all of these things on my own because there was no MOM to teach me how to cook, iron or change a light bulb and all that ish, there was a dad but.......I was basically the mom in my house. And about cleaning, there's always google to help you ( and seriously dude you are in a lot of trouble).

It'll probably be helpful to you in your search if you specify that you're looking for active faults. There are faults everywhere but there might not be movement along them and so won't produce earthquakes. If you ask someone for a map of the faults in northern california, you'll probably get a map with a lot of faults on it! But the vast majority of those would be ones you didn't need to worry about.

easily an earthquake is a stable element from a rigidity and stress attitude, skill replaced into released with the earthquake. i may be plenty greater worried if between the Cascade Mountains began to coach signs and indicators of existence, i understand St. Helen's replaced into rumbling final twelve months, if Rainier starts off to coach signs and indicators of existence then I start to be concerned. diverse plates that Peru and California are on, California is on the Juan de Fuca, Peru, I beleive is the sourthern Pacific Plate

I don't know about schools in Britain, but in America, the students are taught the same curriculum, they're given the same homework, they're given the same lectures, and are taught by the same teachers, with the same allotted class time... I'm not sure why men are tending not to pass they're studies, unless they're more distracted by outside sources [i.e., gaming, internet, etc...] than young women are.
