Using Hazus-MH for Mitigation Planning Efforts

This Hazus-MH earthquake scenario is based on a 7.5 magnitude earthquake (the maximum for this fault segment identified by the U.S. Geological Survey) affecting the San Bernardino segment of the San Andreas Fault Zone. Based on software-supplied data (level 1), this map shows the Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA) of the fault segments, red being the most acceleration. This map includes the percent of functionality for the Highway Bridges, Fire Stations, Hospitals, and Schools categories on the third day after the event. The earthquake model helps jurisdictions adapt their mitigation planning and facility coordination. This map was prepared for the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians' Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) plan.
