Are you in danger? The California Emergency Management Agency has a nifty little mapping program that lets you input your address to see your local earthquake, flood and fire hazards.

A quick search of our own address for earthquake hazards let us know that we have high ground shaking and live in a "liquefaction seismic hazard zone," which basically means that an earthquake could cause certain types of soil to "lose strength and behave like liquid."
