A national hazard map for earthquakes in SoCal: VC Star

I'm disappointed that they didn't ask me to follow up. You know it's tough out there for a freelancer. But the paper did publish a hational hazard map of the Northridge quake, which intrigues:

If this is a map from l996, makes one wonder what the seismic hazard maps of today look like.
