The implosion of a building on the campus of California State is also providing data to scientists about earthquakes.
The San Francisco Bay Area has been bracing for a major earthquake that many worry could level much of the region. Scientists hope to get one-up on the looming quake, courtesy of the demolition of a building at the California University.
Workers imploding the 13-story Warren Hall, a fixture of the East Bay hillside which was built about 2-thousand feet from the Hayward Fault- considered one of the most dangerous in the world.
When the building collapsed, it sent out schock-waves similar to a 2.0 magnitude earthquake. Scientists have placed more than 600 seismographs in concentric circles within a mile of the building to pick up the vibrations.
