  • The United States Geological Survey maintains a website that shows all earthquake activity in the United States, as well as maps showing faults and probabilities.

    Each state issues a series of geologic maps showing formations and faults. These are typically overlay USGS topographic maps of 1:250,000 or 1:24,000. You will find there are many, many more faults than you ever thought in your area. For earthquake data, go to earthquake.usgs.gov, which gives worldwide data on earthquakes. If you drill down enough, there is historical data for specific locations.

    Your best bets are at libraries, universities, and on online databases. You're most likely to find the most up-to-date and dependable maps at a university.
