The Curtis Household is in Los Angeles, California. Kate Curtis, her two children, Noah and Lilly, along with Kate's boyfriend, Gordon Silverman, take residence in the house. The house is a two story and has stairs in the entrance, with pictures hung up on the wall. A door leads to the dining room and kitchen, and a living room with a fireplace. Kate, Noah, Lily and Gordon are having breakfast in the house the day of the 10.9 magnitude earthquake. The house is destroyed in the earthquake. The roof and walls cave into the house, and the house then crumbles below into the ground.
