Earthquakes are probably the number one hazard that affects my area I live about six to seven miles from the Whittier Fault and about 16-18 miles from the Newport Inglewood Fault Just about a week or two ago we experienced an earthquake around 230 am Though nothing was damaged I still noticed some effects from it The ceiling fan was shaking around a lot and some car alarms were sounding If a big earthquake were to hit Placentia I think my house would be prepared Sure some things would fall but nothing extreme The water tank is secured and we would remember to turn off the gas or anything else that could possibly cause a disasterThere isnt a threat for mass-wasting in my area Placentia is almost all flat land no hilly areas susceptible to down slides But the neighboring cities Yorba Linda and Brea could possibly experience some affect I believe there are a few debris-flow basins in those areasThe only chance for liquefaction in my area is towards the BreaYorba Linda city boundaries Possible landslides are more likely to happen in Brea than in Placentia When it rains hard sometimes I can notice the streets have some affect to them But unless it pours endlessly there is really no threat of flooding in my area The hazards Im most concerned with are earthquakes Since I live relatively close to a fault Im concerned that a big quake will hit But I feel prepared for it
