ScienceDaily (Feb. 10, 2011) — A chronology of 1,000 years of earthquakes at the southern end of the San Andreas Fault nixes the idea that lake changes in the now-dry region caused past quakes. However, researchers say, the timeline pulled from sediment in three deep trenches confirms that this portion of the fault is long past the expected time for a major temblor that would strongly shake the Los Angeles Basin.The new study, appearing in the February issue of the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, doesn't change existing thinking about the threat of a major quake -- potentially measuring 7.0 to 8.0 on the Richter scale -- for southern California. It does, however, provide the first published documentation of much-discussed data that have emerged in the last three decades from an area that is now rapidly being built up and populated, just north of the Salton Sea.
Projections of such a quake in recent years led to the nation's largest-ever drill, the Great Southern California ShakeOut, last year. The 2011 ShakeOut is set for Oct. 20. There's even a video projection of the quake's probable route created by the Southern California Earthquake Center. The last earthquake to originate from the area occurred in about 1690.

Do "Solar eruptions" have an effect on the Earth's geological fault lines? Not that it mentions it in this article, but i've seen some reports on it.

And I love how they always say Southern Cali, like a big ripple wouldn't upset the San Andreas and wreak havoc over a massive epicenter :)

I think this scenario of being overdue for a quake here in LA is on everybody's minds. I really wish to move but where to? Every region has its own issues...besides i cant handle the cold weather...just cant..thinking about living in Santa Fe...i dunno

They've been saying this for years. But sooner or later it bound to happen

All those tunnels and caverns under LA dont help either but saying that would'nt the island of California just be ripped off the mainland by natural forces anyway, given time?



Being a Californian' I think it is safe to say we will hold steady, and the rest of the country will drop off into the ocean.....BUwaaahahhahaha

More beach front woooot!

But I see your point :) It would be much uglier down south, more people, more urban sprawl etc...
