Layer: National Loss from Earthquake Damage (2014) (ID: 0)

Name: National Loss from Earthquake Damage (2014)

Display Field: STATE_NAME

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Data show estimated annualized earthquake losses for the conterminous United States and Washington, DC. Efforts to reduce the losses from earthquakes have already proved effective. California’s enhanced building codes; strengthened highway structures; higher standards for school and university, police and fire station construction; and well-prepared emergency management and response agencies reduced deaths, injuries and damage in recent earthquakes. Strengthening of older buildings, gaining a better understanding of California’s earthquake threat, and continued education and preparedness will pay an even greater dividend to Californians in speeding response after future earthquakes. This study estimated nationwide losses to be approximately $4.5 billion per year (in 2012 dollars), roughly 80% of which can be attributed to the states of California, Oregon, and Washington.
