You might not know it, but Santa Cruz has had over dozen earthquakes in the last 30 days.
The total number of earthquakes over the last year? Just shy of 500!
Yes, most Santa Cruz earthquakes are so faint, locals aren’t even aware of them. We’ve all had the experience of lying in bed and feeling a quake that we might not have noticed otherwise!
But: There is always the potential for a big quake with disruptive consequences.
Santa Cruz lies within 15 miles of six major seismic faults and fault systems. One key fault line, the Ben Lomond Fault, runs through Santa Cruz itself. It may be less known than the famous San Andreas Fault, but it can mean trouble for locals any time of the day or night.
