I had a look at the website - a bit scary! There have been lots within the last week, and day. But I suppose, as you say, most of them are small. However, the wimp in me thinks 'surely there must an area, or areas, that are considered relatively safe?'. I'm off to add those pesky bees to my worry list - tee hee!

Everyday there are dozens if not hundreds, but you won't feel the little ones. The big ones, the damage causing quakes are rare. If you look at the map you will see blank areas, no faults, no quakes, more or less.
A factoid; Missouri had an earthquake so violent it rang churchbells in Boston more than a thousand miles away, yet few think of the midwest as a hotbed of earthquake activity. PS, that fault is overdue for another movement

That's true - I guess anywhere is prone to disaster at any time. Can anyone recommend a good place to buy a holiday home in CA? We had always thought Laguna Beach to be the place, but on looking at an aerial view of the place on maps.live.com we can see that the houses are close together, not much land around.

Now, we have a horse of a different color. What do you want from your home and location, and how rich are you? The coast will be pricey.
