According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) nearly 90% of Americans live in a seismically active region. In fact, Florida, Iowa, North Dakota and Wisconsin are the only four states that have not experienced an earthquake from 1975 to 1995. The most active seismic areas run along the West Coast plate boundaries of California, the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
