I want to build a home near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Main Street. Is that spot safe in case of earthquake?" Questions in that vein are familiar to every seismologist. The answer is that there is no locality on earth completely safe against earthquakes. Rather than avoiding the neighborhood of active faults, have structures designed to resist earthquakes and build them on solid ground.
