Well, here is some more bad new for you people out west in the states. 7.8 or greater earthquake In the futrure, For sure. Not a question will it happen , its when will it happen?

Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., and the University of California, Los Angeles, have concluded that earthquake fault zones in California's eastern Mojave Desert are moving in different ways than they expected.

For some reason that doesnt suprize me.

For years researchers were aware that movement in the southern California shear zone was distributed over a 100-kilometer (60-mile) wide area. However, they assumed that deep below the surface the Blackwater Little Lake and the Garlock faults were creeping steadily, something that the new study seems to contradict.

Well we all know what assuming did.
