eastern U.S. has potential for larger/more damaging earthquakes than considered in previous maps/assessments. As one example, scientists learned a lot following the magnitude 5.8 earthquake that struck Virginia in 2011. It was among the largest earthquakes to occur along the east coast in the last century, and helped determine that even larger events are possible. Estimates of earthquake hazards near Charleston, SC, have also gone up due to the assessment of earthquakes in the state.National…

Every year in the United States, natural hazards cost lives and billions of dollars in damage. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) provides policymakers and the public with a clear understanding of natural hazards and their potential threats to society, and assists with developing smart, cost-effective strategies for achieving preparedness and resilience. See "Natural Hazards—A National Threat" Fact Sheet.
