DAY 6: Name Your Closest Fault

Eathquakes happen all around us and all over the world.  Some quakes are so small that they remain unfelt while others create significant damage.  Our hearts go out to the people in New Zealand who experienced the most recent 7.4 magnitude earthquake this past Friday.

DAY 6 ACTIVITY:  Using the website, http://geohazards.usgs.gov/qfaults/map.php, zoom in and find the nearest fault line to where you live or work.  When you zoom in, you should be able to click on the fault to find its name. 

PROOF: Submit the name of the nearest fault line to your home or place of work.  This task is worth +1 point

We are about half way between Lacamas Lake Fault and Portland Hills Fault.
