Interactive Fault Rupture Map. The California Geological Survey publishes maps of the active faults in the Bay Area that reach the surface as part of its work to implement the requirements of the Alquist-Priolo Earthquake Fault Zone Act.
The Hayward fault where the quake shook lies beneath a highly populated area in the Bay—and the next "big one" could be a magnitude 6.8 to 7 earthquake. This fault zone runs from San Pablo Bay in the north to Fremont in the south—passing through Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and Fremont.
