Glad I don't live near that nuclear plant. Mind you we're not talking like a major fault, but magnitude 5 earthquakes should be expected every 100 years apparently. I guess while not city destroying it would certainly be costly and frightening. Seems odd to be talking about this now with all the preparations going on by the Bush government.
