Results of individual lifeline exposure to hazards resulting from the HayWired scenario earthquake sequence for counties and cities in the San Francisco Bay area, California

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

These data are a summary of modeled exposure of various lifeline infrastructure linear features and facilities (transportation, water supply and wastewater, oil and gas, electric power, and telecommunications) to potential hazards resulting from the HayWired earthquake scenario, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurring on the Hayward Fault on April 18, 2018, with an epicenter in the city of Oakland, CA. Existing hazard data (surface offset, ground shaking (mainshock and aftershocks), landslide, liquefaction, and fire following earthquake) were looked at alone and in combination with each other relative to the lifeline infrastructure linear features and facilities to provide estimates of potential exposure to various hazards at varying hazard intensities. Finally, the lifeline infrastructure linear features, facilities, and potential collocations were assessed relative to a single multi-hazard intensity surface developed for this purpose. Summaries aggregate the lifeline infrastructure linear feature and facility exposure to the community level within each county. These comma-delimited .CSV datasets were developed and intended for use in standalone spreadsheet applications such as Microsoft Excel. These data support the following publication: Jones, J.L., Wein, A.M., Schweikert, A.E., and Ballanti, L.R., 2019, Lifeline infrastructure and collocation exposure to the HayWired earthquake scenario--A summary of hazards and potential service disruptions, chap.
