A 6.9 magnitude earthquake, centered in Northern California, was felt as far south as the Bay Area, and as far north as Eugene, OR. Luckily there have been no reports of any serious damage or injury. Located about 50 miles west of Eureka, the shaking began around 10:18pm Sunday evening.
Some after shock tremors were recorded as high as 6.4 on the Richter Scale, but again did not have any real destructive results. The earthquake was described as a "long and slow" episode.
The San Andreas fault line has been the location to some of the most disastrous earthquakes ever seen or recorded. How would your home hold up in a similar or more severe earthquake? Have you retrofitted your foundation for an occasion such as this, or are you one of the many that would cross their fingers and hope for the best?
There are many solutions out there, some better than others, but you don't have to rely on crossing your fingers to ensure the foundation of your home is properly supported in the case of common soil settlement or even foundation crumbling earthquakes.
