The City of La Habra
Referred to as a ‘quiet bedroom community’, La Habra is located close to many beaches, mountains and other recreation areas, making it a popular place for people to settle. The Children’s Museum at La Habra is a popular attraction. Similarly, the La Habra Depot Theatre has been providing a live stage theatre experience for the community for over two decades now. La Habra artists can rent the community art gallery to showcase their talent.

Truly, La Habra does appear to be a ‘caring community’.

However even the best of community intentions cannot change the hard earthquake facts brought forth by La Habra’s geological location. As per the data from the USGS, the likelihood of a large earthquake (measuring more than 5.0 in magnitude) occurring within 31 miles of the city in the next five decades is an incredible 97%. An even more destructive 6.5 magnitude earthquake has 50% chances of occurring within the same radius. Given such high probabilities, earthquake retrofitting and home foundation repairs are necessary actions home owners in La Habra have to take.
