RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. -- Sandwiched between the powerful San Andreas and San Jacinto faults, the Coachella Valley could be the epicenter of the most devastating earthquake in the country, one that is already 300 years overdue, a government scientist warned Thursday.
"There will be several thousand dead and billions of dollars in damage," said Lucy Jones, a seismologist at the U.S. Geological Survey and a member of the California Seismic Safety Commission.[...]
She also said a devastating quake could topple buildings as far away as Los Angeles.

I wonder what other seismologists think about her dire warning.
Should Californians take this one seismolgist seriously?
Predicting a severe earthquake sounds too easy. It's like
saying South Florida is overdue for a big hurricane.
I'm sure it'll happen eventually.
