How would Mountain View fare in an earthquake Around Town, posted by Resident, a resident of the Whisman Station neighborhood, on May 27, 2008 at 2:08 pm
Looking at fault maps, it seems that Mountain View lies between the San Andreas and the Hayward fault. Are we far enough away from these faults to avert a major catastrophe? Which fault poses the greater danger to Mountain View? How about other natural disasters? Wildfires? Tsunamis? Could a rogue wave come down the bay and flood the city?
