If you want to see the hazard designations for a particular parcel, go to the map at
Web Link

Find your general area, and zoom in until you can see individual parcel boundaries and address numbers. When you click on a parcel you will get a popup that lists the APN, city, street address and something like:

"Fault Zone: This parcel is NOT WITHIN an Earthquake Fault Zone.
Liquefaction Zone: This parcel is NOT WITHIN a Liquefaction Zone.
Landslide Zone: All or a portion of this parcel LIES WITHIN a Landslide Zone"
