Workshop on "Future Earthquakes in Southern California and Preparedness"

Earthquakes, are one of the most destructive and deadliest natural disasters, earthquakes occur without any warning. Earthquakes can not be predicted, however, seismic risk of any region is well known depending upon the past earthquakes and from the existing geology and faults which are the sources of an earthquake. During an earthquake, loss of lives occur mainly due to collapse of buildings. The energy released during an earthquake, affects people and structures around epicenter. The faults can be very small or hundreds of miles long,  longer  fault line can generate powerful and dangerous earthquake. Earthquakes happen without any warning, although efforts are being made to develop  early warning signals based on P and S waves. There is famous saying that earthquakes do not kill people, people are killed from the collapse of buildings, freeways, fires during an earthquakes due to short circuiting and due to explosion of gas cylinders during earthquakes.  

Earthquakes in California are frequent, but the power and intensity may vary dramatically.

The Richter scale is a scale that determines the intensity and power of an earthquake. As one can see there are a lot of different earthquakes that have occurred in this area over two years.
