Anniversary Is Another Wake-up Call
This Sunday, October 21, 2018, is the 150th anniversary of the 1868 rupture of the Hayward Fault. Seismologists know that it has ruptured every 150 years, on average.
The Hayward runs through one of the most densely populated areas of any known fault.
The Hayward is connected to the Rodgers Fault, which runs from San Jose to north of Healdsburg. It is likely connected to the Calavaras, which runs through much of the valley east of the Hayward.
