Property owners in California can use their computers to find whether their homes or business are in an area declared an earthquake hazard zone, officials say. Under California law, state geologists are required to produce maps of regions where known seismic faults are likely to generate hazards from shaking, landslides or liquefaction, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The mapping program by the California Geological Survey is ongoing, but many of the completed maps can be downloaded, officials say. The maps, available at www.quake.ca.gov, can be searched by street address or ZIP code.
