Introducing myFault

myFault uses official maps of seismic hazards in California to identify the dangers your home, school or workplace could face during an earthquake.

Produced by California Watch, the Golden State's largest investigative reporting team, myFault is based on the same government data used to report our series on seismic hazards in public schools. The app shows how the places you care about could be affected by landslide, liquefaction and fault rupture zones.

The app also includes an earthquake preparedness checklist for you and your family, based on recommendations by emergency responders, FEMA and the American Red Cross. We've also also included a flashlight (LED flash-enabled devices only) for use in emergencies.
