DescriptionEach time an earthquake occurs in Arizona, the news media and public asks, “Does Arizona have earthquakes?”. Short answer: yes! In comparison with California, Nevada, and Utah, major earthquakes in Arizona are infrequent. But each year, Arizona Broadband Seismic Network (ABSN) seismometers record hundreds of earthquakes in Arizona. And Arizona is not immune to the effects of earthquakes that originate in California, Utah, and Mexico, too. Yuma, in Arizona’s far southwest corner, is prone to earthquakes originating in southern California and Baja California, Mexico. But earthquakes occur throughout Arizona and communities in central and northern Arizona have recorded damaging earthquakes. Taking steps now to prepare your family and home will help mitigate the effects of moderate to severe earth shaking.
