Arizona is earthquake country, young active faults exist in and around Arizona
Oct. 04, 2012,

The Arizona Geological Survey has just released a new, well-illustrated 44-page book that can be downloaded for free (8Mb)

[link to repository.azgs.az.gov]

The book is intended as a guide on how to prepare for and minimize damage from the ground shaking that accompanies earthquakes. It also explains the geology of earthquakes and why they occur.

Young, active faults exist in and around Arizona. The northern Arizona Seismic Belt, which bisects Coconino County, hosts the greatest concentration of active faults in the state and is the most seismically active region in Arizona. Some faults, such as the Lake Mary Fault just south of Flagstaff, are capable of large magnitude earthquakes, up to magnitude 7. Yavapai, Mohave, Yuma, Pima, Cochise, Graham, and Greenlee County all host faults capable of delivering moderate to large seismic events, too. And large earthquakes on faults from surrounding states and Mexico, including California’s San Andreas fault system, are capable of damaging homes and infrastructure and threatening lives here in Arizona.

“Arizona is Earthquake Country” includes a seven-step earthquake safety guide that shows how to prepare your family and home in advance of an earthquake; how to behave during an earthquake – whether indoors or out; and how to deal with damage and related issues immediately following an earthquake.

Willis? I live in AZ and thought we were quake safe here! Bummer.

Most earthquakes in Arizona are low magnitude and go unnoticed. However, there is potential for a big one. The Arizona Geological Survey has several videos featuring earthquakes in and near Arizona. The newest is a time-lapse animation of the Brawley earthquake swarm that occurred on 26-29, August, 2012. Brawley is in southern California, just south of the Salton Sea.

That link also contains several other earthquake-related videos (4 to 6 minutes long) so scroll down the page and you will see:

Earthquakes in Arizona

Time-lapse video animation of earthquakes in and around Arizona from 1852 to 2011. The apparent increase in seismic events in the latter part of the 20th century and early 21st century stems from improved seismic monitoring. It is interesting to see where the most earthquakes occur.

Lake Mary Fault

The Lake Mary Fault, located immediately south of Flagstaff, Arizona, represents the greatest earthquake hazard to the more than 70,000 people of Flagstaff and environs. Dr. David Brumbaugh, Arizona Earthquake Information Center (AEIC) at Northern Arizona University, narrates the, “Lake Mary Fault — Potential Earthquake Threat to Flagstaff, Arizona.”

Little Chino Fault and Big Chino Fault

Filmed on location in Chino Valley, two separate six minute videos describe the geometry and timing of seismic activity on these faults. This is an active fault area with a moderate recurrence rate on the order of tens of thousands of years. It is capable of yielding earthquakes in the range of magnitude 6 to 6.5 and presents a hazard to residents of Chino Valley and nearby Prescott, Arizona.

Earthquake Monitoring in Arizona, the role of the Arizona Integrated Seismic Network

Arizona has earthquakes. Geologist Dave Brumbaugh and seismic technician Lisa Linville, both of the Arizona Earthquake Information Center (Northern Arizona University), describe the role of the Arizona Integrated Seismic Network in monitoring earthquake activity in the Grand Canyon State. And Lisa deconstructs one of the broadband seismic stations that form the backbone of the system.

The 1887 Sonoran Earthquake

On 3 May 1887, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake rippled across Sonora, Mexico, and southern Arizona. Phil Pearthree, Chief of the Environmental Geology division of the Arizona Geological Survey, revisits that event in this video. The earthquake killed dozens of people and damaged or destroyed several hundred structures. A similar event today would disturb and disrupt population centers in northern Sonora and southeastern Arizona and New Mexico.

Interesting. Thank you. Why is a Bosnian interested in AZ quake potential?

I'm not from Bosnia, I live in Herzegovina on Croatia border area ..

I am interested in all dangerous location worldwide and the information on all languages ..

It's what I do in my life, in free time ..

I was also very interesting in everything about earthquakes as a kid ..

I've been in central AZ for 15 years. Haven't felt a thing.
Not intended to be a factual statement.

Good for you my friend, :)

They are saying it's young active faults ..

I think they are right, in future eartquekes will probably shake more and more that area too

Mostly they was small magnitude but stronger EQ's probably coming in future ..

Watch this video and you will understand ..

Re: Arizona is earthquake country, young active faults exist in and around Arizona
I live very close to the Grand Canyon.

Hiking in AZ is fabulous and I mean that. Over the years I've collected hundreds of volcanic rocks. They can be found like scattered BB's all over the state. Some are black and brown and other lava colors are much lighter in color.
It got me thinking that there must have been a gigantic volcanic explosion to toss big & small balls of lava this far from... Yellowstone?
And quartz. Gobs of it. Giant sized pieces that look like white ice.
This is just a few miles from my house.
I've also found artifacts, arrowheads and pottery shards while walking in dry wash beds.

I'm gonna check that map for volcanos.
