The USGS and its partners monitor and report earthquakes. The maps displayed below show how earthquake hazards vary across the United States.

Hazards are measured as the likelihood of experiencing earthquake shaking of various to read the mapsThe colors in the maps denote “seismic design categories” (SDCs), which reflect the likelihood of experiencing earthquake shaking of various intensities.

While strong earthquakes are unusual in Maryland, the state occasionally experiences perceptible earthquakes. Portions of Maryland are considered to be at moderate risk for earthquake damage.

1 In order to evaluate and monitor this risk, Maryland Geological Survey has developed the Maryland Seismic Network. The Seismic Network provides high quality, real-time data on local. Long-term National Seismic Hazard Map. Earthquake hazard map showing peak ground accelerations having a 2 percent probability of being exceeded in 50 years, for a firm rock site.

The map is based on the most recent USGS models for the conterminous U.S. Seismic Hazard Mapping On August 23rdVirginia’s largest recorded seismic event shook central Virginia, causing almost $90 million in local damages.

This map uses a ranking system ranging from 1 (nil to very low. Seismic hazard is the hazard associated with potential earthquakes in a particular area, and a seismic hazard map shows the relative hazards in different areas.

The maps are made by considering what we currently know about: Past faults and earthquakes The behavior of seismic waves as they travel through different parts of the U.S. crust The. maps_usgs image Identifier usgs_md Mediatype collection Nav_order Num_top_ba 5 Publicdate Show_search_by_year true Spotlight_identifier usgs_drg_md__a3 Title USGS Maps of Maryland.

A seismic hazard is the probability that an earthquake will occur in a given geographic area, within a given window of time, and with ground motion intensity exceeding a given threshold. With a hazard thus estimated, risk can be assessed and included in such areas as building codes for standard buildings, designing larger buildings and infrastructure projects, land use planning .
