CEA was pleased to welcome more than 150 people to its first-ever Public Forum. The online meeting provided Spanish and American Sign Language interpretation and allowed participants to share their suggestions as CEA faces projected rate and coverage changes.
CEA continues moving forward with its community outreach efforts. CEA members are actively meeting online with residents, statewide, who seem keen to learn more about how to strengthen their homes through a seismic retrofit.
Despite being in the throes of a deadly pandemic, the 2020 version of the Great ShakeOut and the millions of people who practiced how to “Drop, Cover and Hold On” proved that when it comes to the importance of earthquake preparedness, the show must go on.
In an ongoing effort to educate Californians on how to strengthen their homes against earthquake damage, CEA met virtually with members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco—and reminded them that earthquakes don’t stop during a pandemic.
Residential earthquake damage can be expensive and inconvenient. However, you can prepare ahead of time to help minimize the financial impacts to your family by strengthening and protecting your house. CEA participated in a webinar hosted by the Earthquake Country Alliance to educate Californians about how to effectively minimize financial hardship caused by a major seismic event.
CEA employees began to shelter in place and work from home since mid-March to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Our commitment to help educate, mitigate and insure community members against earthquake risk continues, but with a virtual twist. As part of adapting to a “new normal,” CEA representatives are meeting with community members throughout California—now online!
This July, CEA remembers the Ridgecrest earthquakes, the largest earthquakes to strike Southern California in 20 years. We take a look at some of the damage caused by the earthquake sequence, which included two strong shakers of magnitude 6.4 and 7.1, and their aftershocks, that rattled Kern and San Bernardino counties.
In response to the Governor's public request to help our local foster youth impacted by COVID-19, CEA donated laptops to allow them to continue their academic responsibilities.
A look back at the damage caused by the Baja California Earthquake in 2010, which affected both sides of the US-Mexico border. Today, Southern California is still at risk of being impacted by a damaging earthquake.
In early March 2020, the National Earthquake Conference brought together scientists, engineers, and policymakers to share the latest advances in the seismic field. The conference was held in San Diego, and also served as the main platform to reveal the updated San Diego Earthquake Planning Scenario.
