What are the probabilities that an earthquake will happen in Los Angeles or the San Francisco Bay area? According to the USGS, Here are the statistics:

Los Angeles area:

Within the next 30 years the probability is:

  • 60% that an earthquake measuring magnitude 6.7
  • 46% that an earthquake measuring magnitude 7
  • 31% that an earthquake measuring magnitude 7.5

San Francisco Bay area:

Within the next 30 years the probability is:

  • 72% that an earthquake measuring magnitude 6.7
  • 51% that an earthquake measuring magnitude 7
  • 20% that an earthquake measuring magnitude 7.5

Again, according to the USGS:

Published maps will only provide generalized, uninterpreted information about specific areas. Every property consists of a unique combination of geologic and structural factors that must be considered to determine what might happen to a building during an earthquake. Therefore, an individual site study is necessary.
