Record-Breaking 408 Earthquakes Hit Bay Area City Over Past 2 Weeks

This past month in San Ramon 408 earthquakes has hit San Ramon, California in the past two weeks, including 11 in one 24-hour stretch. I thought this was pretty interesting article because this is something that is happening as we speak. With all these little earthquakes happening professionals in these fields say that have nothing to worry about because there has not been an earthquake over 3.2 which is a pretty light one. The chance of a serious quake (of magnitude 6.7 or above) hitting the San Ramon area is a mere 8 percent over the next 30 years, the agency estimates. In comparison, the chance of a quake that size occurring somewhere in the Bay Area over the next three decades is 72 percent. See here
