Introduction My name is Martinia Akers I live in Raleigh NC which is on the east coast of the United States. I looked at the National Seismic Hazard Map and found that where I live in not prone to earthquakes. I did the hazard report and it came back with 2.493 which is relatively low compared to California which is 44.493. What patterns to you see in the distribution of earthquakes across the continental United States? The worst allocation of hotspots for seismic activity is on the west coast. The reddest spots are located in western California. I do see one red spot is western Tennessee. I also see some very small red spot is western Nevada and Eastern California. Where I live in Raleigh NC our color is Gray which is relatively no risk at all. There are some yellow spots in South Carolina and a red spot about 8 to 10 hours away in western Tennessee. What patterns do you see in the distribution of earthquakes around the world? The one pattern I do see is most of the earthquakes happen along the Pacific coast lines. Another pattern I see is most of the earthquakes happen in the ocean whether it’s in the middle of the ocean or right off the coast. Most earthquakes do happen near the ocean I only saw about 2
