The USGS acknowledged though that the natural disaster was relatively deep for a Hayward Fault quake.

The Hayward fault is the current fault with the highest probability of an natural disaster to happen, according to Drysdale.

Knudson said the USGS had learned earthquakes, at least on the southern part of the Hayward Fault, occur every 140, 150 to 160 years. It's been 150 years since the last rupture. Thirty people died then and there was extensive damage. "If there isn't a large natural disaster in the next couple of the days the odds go down". This fault zone runs from San Pablo Bay in the north to Fremont in the south-passing through Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and Fremont.
