  17. 17. REALITY: URGENT DEMANDS ON COMMUNITY LACK OF EMERGENCY RESPONSE CAPABILITY INSUFFICIENT CAPABILITY TO RESPOND TO DEMANDS ON COMMUNITY
  18. 18. WHAT IS EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS? A state of readiness on individual, urban, sub-regional, and national scales that is sufficient to keep the expected and unexpected effects of an earthquake from causing a disaster
  19. 19. ANTICIPATION IS THE KEY TO PREPAREDNESS • Strong ground shaking • Tsunami wave run up • Liquefaction • Landslides • Aftershocks • Vulnerabilities
  20. 20. STRONG GROUND SHAKING
  21. 21. GROUND SHAKING CAUSES SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC LOSSES
  22. 22. AS COMMUNITY PREPAREDNESS INCREASES, SO DOES PROTECTION OF BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE
  23. 23. WHAT IS PROTECTION? A legally mandated state of planning and verified robustness, strength, and ductility for important buildings and essential - critical infrastructure to prevent loss of function
  24. 24. WHAT IS EMERGENCY RESPONSE All of the scripted and unscripted heroic and historic responses during the “race against time” after a quake to save lives and protect property
  25. 25. KEY ELEMENTS OF PREPAREDNESS • Know your seimic activity (i.e., Seismicity ) • Know your fault zones • Know your Vulnerabilites
  26. 26. FAULTS
  27. 27. THE USA’S MOST NOTABLE PLATE BOUNDARY FAULT ZONE • San Andreas Fault • 600 Miles long • Source of M8 Earthquakes in 1847 and 1906
  28. 28. THE USA’S OTHER NOTABLE PLATE BOUNDARY FAULT ZONE • The Juan De Faca Plate • Subducting beneath Wash and Oregon • Potential for M9.0
  29. 29. ONE OF THE USA’S TWO NOTABLE INTRA-PLATE FAULT ZONES • Wasatch Fault, Utah • 250 Miles long • Potential source of M7.0-7.5 earthquake
  30. 30. ONE OF THE USA’S TWO NOTABLE INTRA-PLATE FAULT ZONES • New Madrid Seismic Zone • Source of four (4) M* earthquakes in 1811--1812
  31. 31. Community preparedness and emergency management response increases as the community’s capability to anticipate what will increases

  35. 35. INTEGRATED KNOWLEDGE • WHAT IS LIKELY TO HAPPEN • WHERE • WHY • HOW BAD • WHAT CAN WE DO TO MINIMIZE THE SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACTS EARTHQUAKE SCENARIO EARTHQUAKE RISK REDUCTION POSTDISASTER INVESTIGATIONS MONITORING AND RESEARCH
  36. 36. NORTHERN CALIFORNIA SCENARIO (developed in 2008) BASED ON INTEGRATED KNOWLEDGE FROM MONITORING, RESEACH, AND POSTEARTHQUAKE STUDIES SINCE APRIL 1906
  37. 37. NORTHERN CALIFORNIA: WHAT NEEDS TO BE ANTICIPATED? • How likely is a damaging earthquake to occur? • Where and when will it occur? • How big will it be? • How strong will its potential disaster agents be?
  38. 38. • The Bay Area is prone to large earthquakes because it straddles the boundary between two major tectonic plates — the North American and Pacific plates.
  39. 39. • Much of the stress release happens on the San Andreas fault, but some of it is relieved by the Hayward fault and other smaller parallel faults.
  40. 40. • Because of its location in the densely populated Bay area of 7 million people, a Hayward fault quake is likely to cause worse societal impacts than a San Andreas quake and be one of the nation's largest natural disasters.
  41. 41. DAMAGE PHYSICAL EFFECTS CAUSE SOCIETAL IMPACTS AND RISK COLLAPSE LOSS OF FUNCTION ECONOMIC LOSS RISK
  42. 42. WHAT NEEDS TO BE ANTICIPATED (Continued)? • What kinds of buildings are at risk? • What kinds of basic, essential, and critical infrastructure are at risk? • What are the physical vulnerabilities?
  43. 43. • Potentially affecting 5 million people, a Hayward fault quake damages homes, schools, senior centers, hospitals, businesses, the Bay bridge, and the campus of University of California, Berkeley.
  44. 44. WHAT NEEDS TO BE ANTICIPATED (Continued)? • What are the social vulnerabilities? • What is the likely damage distribution? • What are the HAT ARE THE LIKELY CASUALTIES, SOCIO- ECONOMIC, AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS?
  45. 45. • Damage will be extensive to buildings and infrastructure. •The region's transportation infrastructure and water delivery systems are expected to take a major hit in a M7.0 or greater earthquake.
  46. 46. • A M7.0 earthquake on the Hayward fault will cause an estimated $210 billion dollars in damage.
