Of Arkstorms and Earthquakes

IF you are thinking about buying land in California be sure you don't buy on ANY floodplain. On one level this is just common sense. However, when you see what an Arkstorm can and likely will bring at some point then you understand better my meaning. As you can see you don't want to buy land where you see water on this map because it will be under 3 to 30 feet of water for around 6 months to a year during an arkstorm year. We don't know when that will happen again but usually it's every 150 to 300 years down through history. However, it is also possible that Global Climate change might change this and make it either better or worse: either way.  So, the things you need to consider in buying land in California are floodplains, Arkstorms, and Earthquakes.To understand this better read:

Jump to Southern California - The Great Flood of 1862 was the largest flood in the recorded history of Oregon, Nevada, and California, occurring from December 1861 to January 1862. It was preceded by weeks of continuous rains and snows in the very high elevations that began in Oregon in November 1861 and continued into January 1862.
