san andreas fault

For decades Californians have been warned repeatedly that the “big one” is coming. Someday a massive earthquake is going rip through the San Andreas Fault, possibly causing thousands of casualties and billions of dollars in damage. So far nothing that serious has occurred in recent memory. With the exception of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the state has been largely spared from any serious tectonic disaster.

But according to some experts we may not have to wait much longer, especially in regards to the southern portion of the San Andreas fault near San Diego and Los Angeles. That’s because it’s been so long since this fault has had an earthquake. The pressure is building there. The fault typically has a major earthquake every 100 years or so, but this particular portion hasn’t experienced a major quake since 1857, which was a magnitude 7.9.

According to Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center: “The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight. And the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go.”

If it’s anything like the earthquake of 1857 (and it could easily be worse), the effects will be felt all over California. The last time it happened, soil was liquefied as far north as Stockton, well over 300 miles away. It’s estimated that a quake of this magnitude would kill 1,800 people and do $200 billion in damages, despite modern building standards. In terms of damages and casualties, that would put it in the same category as Hurricane Katrina.

    California falling into the ocean could only be seen as a good thing in the long run.

    • I would find it charming to have beachfront property at the southern state line of Wyoming.

  • Mike

    To any and all conservatives left in CA, GET OUT NOW. Let the whole state fall into the ocean so the liberal regressive scum that have destroyed it can go along with it.

    • I’d just as leave let the conservative conspirators go with the liberal regressive scum. Total reset is in order.

  • bill lopez

    Some days the stories are just crazy as a shit house rat here on the sheeple…

    • In direct proportion to their complete irrelevance to the stated purpose of the group.

  • Jim

    It can’t happen soon enough. Anything to get of the cesspool called kalifornia.

  • Doyle Nibits

    What will happen in California when a 10 mile section near a city suddenly drops into the ocean? The entire state of Cal. is supposed to drop in the ocean within maybe 150 years.

    • Why would it happen in 10 mile sections?

      • Doyle Nibits

        Maybe larger sections? But large sections are eventually going to have to drop.

        • Or at least separate, but that is what tectonic plates have always done.

  • Make it so.

  • If they are in California when it happens, they won’t have to leave.

    YA! Finally! I will always be afraid and hold my breath, waiting. And more than likely for another 40 years, idiots!!!

    nope, that ain’t the next disaster.

    Hopefully, California will slide under the Pacific Ocean, taking millions of illegals and their commie Democrat supporters with it.
