These numbers tell a compelling and personal story about the Bay Area’s potential future after an earthquake. Using the latest information on earthquake hazard in California and the publicly available demographic data, we have made estimations of expected future earthquake economic losses in the State.

The estimates presented in this paper are for two categories: scenario earthquake loss, and annualized earthquake loss. Abstract. Damage to existing structures can be expected to be severe if large earthquakes occur in or near large urban areas.

For example, Steinbrugge et al. () estimate that property losses for a magnitude earthquake on the Newport-Inglewood fault in the Los Angeles, California, metropolitan area would be $ billion ( dollars), excluding losses for communication and Cited by: 1.

However, these studies were long preceded by the John Freeman's book Earthquake Damage and Earthquake Insurance [17], which specified what is nowadays considered to be the earthquake loss estimation [18]. Afterwards, earthquake loss estimation was mostly considered in the scope of the insurance sector.
