I get a lot, I mean thousands upon thousands, of readers visiting theFrontSteps on any given day wondering which neighborhoods in San Francisco are situated on bedrock, and which are prone to liquefaction or earthquake induced landslides.

Clearly, we’re a culture of not worrying about something until it happens.
So – where’s the next quake gonna hit? Nobody knows, but The San Francisco Business Times recently published a Map of The Bay Area’s Biggest Earthquakes (and the damage they caused), which I found incredibly interesting, so I thought I’d share it with you. Enjoy…
