It depends on where you are. Sacramento gets a break on seismicity, Kansas
City will see a decline, in San Francisco and LA it depends on fault
proximity. Many areas will see an increase on the demand side. Little Rock
saw a pretty good increase due to the rare event that was tripped by the 2%
in 50 year event in the New Madrid Seismic Zone.
The code giveth and the code taketh away.
