San Francisco


Lunchtime Forum

The Haywired project is a major, multi-agency planning process to simulate a magnitude 7.05 earthquake scenario - and figure out how to prepare the Bay Area for it. The study builds upon understanding of the last large earthquake to occur on the Hayward fault in 1868, but with the realization that modern urban infrastructures are made vulnerable by multiple layers of interdependencies between lifelines. Join us for a look at the scenario and what some of the partners involved are doing over the next two years for the scenario exercise.
