LUNCH TOPIC DESCRIPTION

The Rose Canyon Fault Zone investigations indicate a geologic record of many major local earthquakes occurring over the last 10,000 years. We cannot predict when the next one will occur, but we can be certain that it will. Is San Diego ready?

This presentation will outline the fault rupture, liquefaction, and ground shaking hazards expected by the EERI Scenario team to accompany this scenario earthquake and will explore the potential impacts on the buildings and infrastructure systems and some of the consequences for the San Diego community and economy.

How will the older buildings fare? Newer buildings? The critical lifeline utilities and transportation infrastructure systems? How will airport and the port facilities fare? What will be the impacts on government facilities and operations, on emergency services and response capacities? What will be the impacts on the tourism industry, waterfront activities, downtown business operations? On the border crossings and bi-national trade?

These questions will be investigated and potential earthquake consequences considered. Some key mitigation measures and strategies will be suggested that can be pursued beforehand to better prepare San Diego for the inevitable future RCFZ earthquake and to help transform San Diego into a more resilient city.
