    This is one of those stories that just smacks of fear-mongering. Yes, there could be a large earthquake, but if you house is built to current code, you will probably be alright.

    There is always a danger of "the big one"

    Thats kinda what happens when you live near a giant freaking fault line.

    Then again, maybe San Adreas wasnt a movie but a PSA warning us what was coming............

    I live near a substantial fault line now. There is one that runs near the Ohio river valley, I'm certainly within range of it.
    It is like people who live near Yellowstone, or Mt. St. Helens. You could wake up and be blown up by a volcano. You could also win the lottery on a Sunday drawing. Equal chance of both.

    Dun worry Cali, The Rock will save you.

    Yeah, the entire crust of the earth rises and falls due to plate tectonics. If you're gonna be afraid of that you might as well buy that property on the moon.

    Yeah, it does that.

    It's the f**king San Andreas fault.

    Well, it has been awhile since California had a decent shake. But as for the land actually rising and falling, I'm not surprised in the least. I thought scientists were already well aware that the earth has sections that 'breathe' a bit especially along the faults.

    The fault itself is a visible border between the Pacific plate and the North American plate and Los Angeles isn't actually on the North American plate. So your plan involves relocating an entire city.

    Californians must be pissing into the fault lines like they do on light poles. Haven't they ever heard of a toilet?

    I'm glad I live in a good state where a megaquake can never ever happen.

    It's great when you enjoy things.
