Homework Help: Advice

Posted by AL 92 on Saturday, July 24, 2010 at 7:10am.

If I want to live in the state of California in the future, there is one concern that I have.

Since most of California's major cities are fairly close to the San Andreas fault line, I can expect earthquakes. Are all the buildings earthquake-proof? I want to be sure of this because I feel scared of quakes that are worse than the 5.0 earthquake that happened nearby Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I felt it for like 15 seconds or less.
