Seismic hazards in urban areas may include ground shaking, liquefaction, landslides, and tsunamis. Ground shaking is the most common hazard and can cause damage to buildings and infrastructure, while liquefaction can cause ground settlement, foundation failure, and damage to buried infrastructure. Landslides can occur in steep or hilly areas and can cause damage to buildings and transportation networks. Tsunamis can also be a significant hazard in coastal areas, causing flooding and damage to buildings and infrastructure.
