Every year approximately 500 earthquakes occur in the state of California that are large enough to be felt. San Diego County, in comparison to other southern California areas, has sparse seismicity. However, since 1984, earthquake activity in San Diego County has doubled over that of the preceding 50 years.
Winter storms in California can be deadly, causing flooding, flash floods, high coastal surf, mudslides, snow storms, and avalanches. Understanding and preparing for flooding can help you weather the storms.
