Hayward, Rodgers Creek faults connected

LOS ANGELES (AP) The most dangerous earthquake fault in the San Francisco Bay Area is connected to another, which means both could rupture simultaneously and unleash major devastation, a new study finds.

The Hayward Fault has long been considered a threat because it runs under densely populated neighborhoods east of San Francisco. The new work found that beneath San Pablo Bay, it joins with a second, less active underground fracture to the north.

1. So, in effect, an extension of the Rodgers Creek Fault runs directly under Cal's Memorial Stadium


where Aaron Rodgers used to play.

2. Runs directly under Memorial Stadium? One could make the argument it runs THROUGH the stadium

UC Berkeley lost their on campus earthquake creep laboratory when they seismically upgraded the stadium. Used to be, every football enthusiast made at least one pilgrimage to the end zone of of the stadium to have a look see. The running joke was, "Hayward Fault? No, Contractor's fault".
