The Hazus Team Presents Key Updates at National Earthquake Conference in San Diego, March 2020

The Hazus Team demonstrated the importance of recent nationwide infrastructure data updates by performing a comparative analysis of the Rose Canyon San Diego Earthquake Scenario. The results were unveiled during this year's National Earthquake Conference. Analysis results showed a 10% increase in losses driven by the newer infrastructure data, as well as a complete shift in bridge performance. This highlights the importance of using accurate risk information to identify the best mitigation opportunities.
