The highest hazard areas shown by the liquefaction hazard maps are concentrated in regions of man-made landfill, especially fill that was placed many decades ago in areas that were once submerged bay floor.

Such areas along the Bay margins are found in San Francisco, Oakland and Alameda Island, as well as other places around San Francisco Bay. SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A new map online can tell you if your house is standing on solid ground in the event of a strong earthquake.

This is a digital Seismic Hazard Zone Map presenting areas where liquefaction and landslides may occur during a strong earthquake.

Three types of geological hazards, referred to as seismic hazard zones, may be featured on the map: 1) liquefaction, 2) earthquake-induced landslides, and 3) overlapping liquefaction and earthquake-induced landslides. Developers of properties falling.
