In California, the seller of a home is required to disclose to the buyer if that home is in a certain type of Natural Hazard Zone. Here is a list of websites where you can check for yourself about whether a home is in one of those 6 certain zones or not.
First, scroll up a little to the top. On this page, under Jurisdiction, select Calfifornia, then select your County, then select what city or unincorporated area you're looking for. Then, hit Search right below that.
Then, you'll need to pick Effective Products, and select FIRM Panels. Under Product ID, the first choice will have an IND in it. That's a map of the area. Pick View on that one to open a new window to find out the number of the map of where your home is (like 06007C0310E, for example), then in the previous window under Product ID again, pick the local map # of your home.
Zones A, AO, A1-A30, AE, A99, AH, AR, AR/A, AR/AE, AR/AH, AR/AO, AR/A1-30, V1-V30, VE, or V are all areas having special Flood, Mudflow, or Flood-Related Erosion Hazards, according to this FEMA website.
First, hit Click Here to Enter, read the Disclaimer, & hit OK. Then, zoom into the area you're looking for. There are no reported problems in Glenn County, but there are for both Chico & Oroville, among others! Click the colored square to view the Dam Breach Inundation Map for the neighborhood you're interested in. If you're in south Chico or Durham, be sure to check Paradise Lake in addition to California Park Lake.
Zoom into the area of California you're interested in. You'll notice most of Paradise, and a small part of Upper Bidwell Park are shaded dark red. Those are the only 2 High Fire Hazard Severity Zones I noticed in Butte County. I don't see anything in Glenn County, but there's a little in north Red Bluff, a bunch on the edges of Redding, and some around Quincy, Chester, and a lot of Portola.
This is the same map as the High Fire Hazard Severity Zone above, but we're looking for the Pink areas this time... and there's much more of this. The difference between the two is who is responsible, and a Wildland Fire Area falls under the State Responsibility Area. Most foothill locations of the Sierra Nevada are in this area.
This is the same map as the Earthquake Fault Zone map above, but we're looking for areas prone to Liquefaction and/or Earthquake Induced Landslides this time... and I don't see either of those in the North State on this map. The only 2 parts of California with those on this map that I noticed are the Bay Area and Los Angeles.
