Subject: Wind and Seismic for Redding CA

I have a client who needs to specify a tank that will
be installed near Redding CA.  He has asked me what to
tell the manufacturer about wind and seismic loads. 
Being from the east coast, I would just like to check
with some of you CA Engineers to be sure that what I
am going to tell him is OK.  I guess my first question
is whether I can use 1997 UBC.  If I can, I think I
can tell him Seismic Zone 3 with a Minimum Basic Wind
Speed of 80 mph. Any comments are appreciated.
