Wow Ana... Nice map :o) 

Isn't it strange that there are so many schools in the slide areas? That is sad...

The Hayward fault is the correct fault as the San Andrea fault runs up the penisula and out to sea just about at SF.   

The Hayward fault is actually the fault with the highest probability of causing the "big one" in the Bay Area at the moment.

Hi,

It's the Hayward fault. You can see exactly where it runs through Berkeley on this map, which also shows the active and potential landslide areas around it.

If you're familiar with the area, I can tell you it runs right under the Cal Memorial Stadium (from section LL to Section XX) or Codornices park.


Regards,



Anna

If you can find the county's land information site, that will show you many interesting facts. Very simular what you would find in a natural hazard report.

Take care

Here is a picture of faults in the area. San Andreas runs to the left and to the top and the Hayward fault is center and South of the bay.
