It’s no secret - we live in a geographical area that is seismically more active than many other locations around the country. The San Andreas, Hayward, Calaveras fault lines and many other smaller fault lines are all near by. As might be expected, we experience many small earth movements in this area – most of which we don’t even feel. And, yes, occasionally we DO feel larger magnitude earth movements or quakes. Some are “rollers” and some are “jolts”. Some are single events, and others involve a series of follow-on events. All are potentially dangerous. Confidence and peace of mind comes with being prepared for such events.
