$17.2 Million Damage to Homes

Posted in Press Releases

Many California residents who endured flooding, mudslides and evacuations during a weeklong onslaught of rain must now clean up or even rebuild. 

Preliminary damage estimates throughout California were already in the tens of millions of dollars and expected to rise. A state of emergency was declared in a total of nine counties, including Los Angeles, Orange and Santa Barbara.

The inland region of Southern California east of Los Angeles emerged as among the hardest hit, especially San Bernardino County.

Baja Earthquake Puts Strain On Los Angeles

Posted in Press Releases

The magnitude 7.2 earthquake that rocked desert communities in Baja, Mexico on 4 April 2010 appears to have transferred strain onto southern California faults, raising the risk of a "Big One" in the Los Angeles Basin, scientists said yesterday at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, California.

What the scientists saw was that strain propagated north, onto the Elsinore Fault, which leads into Los Angeles, and the San Jacinto Fault, which threatens the eastern part of the Los Angeles Basin near San Bernardino.

By mid-summer, the strain had quit advancing, but that doesn't mean the long-term threat has abated. "We know [the Baja quake] has increased the stress on the Elsinore and San Jacinto Faults," said Eric Fielding, a geophysicist NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, California. "We don’t know if that increase is enough to cause the faults to have an earthquake in the near future, but it has definitely increased the stress."
