Last week, it was discovered that the Hayward and Rodgers Creek faults are connected at the surface. If both break simultaneously, a 7.4-magnitude earthquake could occur and impact several cities. In the video, a red blotch expands over a map of the Bay Area to demonstrate how a quake could affect the region. – USGS
