HazardHub Earthquake Risk
Earthquakes are rare, but pose serious risk to life and property when they do occur. In addition to the massive damage that can happen to structures and infrastructure, disruption of business continuity and loss of income for several weeks can rival the costs of structural damage for companies and households. When and where the next earthquake will occur is impossible to predict. Science, however, can provide: 1) the locations where earthquake events are most likely to occur; and 2) the potential magnitude and structural damage that such events will produce.
