Here are earthquake scenarios that are completed, illustrating a wide range of purposes, detail, audiences, and including a discussion of lessons learned, problems and successes.
In 1995 the then-California Division of Mines and Geology worked with the north coast community to develop a planning scenario for a subduction zone event.
This scenario is based on a detailed HAZUS run, demonstrating estimated losses.
In 2005, the Cascadia Region Earthquake Workgroup (CREW) prepared this scenario for magnitude 9 earthquake along the Cascadia fault. This workgroup is a public/private partnership.
For the past several years, organizations interested in promoting earthquake preparedness in California have created alliances to work collaboratively on media and public events, creating awareness and hopefully stimulating
The most extensive earthquake scenario developed to date, used as the basis for a region-wide earthquake drill where over 5 million people participated.
This scenario, published in 1996, grew out of a day-long symposium held during the 1995 Annual Meeting of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute.
A county by county HAZUS run, available online.
This report presents the results of a multi-year study that addresses the risks of an earthquake in the New York City area.
A 1999 report from the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) on the effects of a Cascadia earthquake.
This scenario was developed as part of the 2006 anniversary conference on the 1906 earthquake.
This scenario was developed by a consortium, and ultimately published by the state of Washington.
