5:08 am
zip code which is really most of the bay area. the application takes minutes and you fill it out before ever hiring a contractor. we spoke to a family who used the program. they used a contractor to bolt the home to the foundation, strapped and braced the water heater and reinforced the basement with plywood. >> the plywood stop these beams here from sliding. >> reporter: the $3,000 for that family covered about a third of the cost which is from $5,000 to $7,000. according to usgs, there's a 72% chance that the next "big one" will hit here along the hayward fault line. and that's a 6.7 or higher. that's in the next 30 years. that's why it's critical that if you are a homeowner who owns a home that was built before 1979, that you look into the program, register today and most people get the $3,000 to
