Bay Area family describes riding out massive 6.8 Morocco earthquake, says CA quake training helped

– A Bay Area family was in Morocco during a 6.8 magnitude earthquake.

– Their upbringing in earthquake-prone California equipped them with the necessary training to remain composed during the earthquake.

– More than 2,000 people lost their lives in the Morocco earthquake.

The San Andreas Fault in California is capable of producing a 7.8 magnitude earthquake 

– and other faults like Calaveras and Hayward can also cause significant seismic events.

California experiences tens of thousands of earthquakes annually 

– with around 5,000 occurring in the San Francisco Bay Area.

– Despite the high frequency of earthquakes in California, the likelihood of feeling one while visiting is relatively low.

– The family's experience highlights the importance of earthquake preparedness and training even when traveling abroad.

– The earthquake in Morocco garnered media attention, with videos and news reports covering the event.
