Any number of disaster scenarios would seemingly bring the U.S. to a grinding halt, and wreak untold havoc upon the vulnerable population.
Worse, there seems to be an uncomfortable sense that a major event like that is long overdue.
Surely one of the most devastating would be a major earthquake along the San Andreas fault line. For several years now, experts have warned that the stress levels have reached a dangerous threshold and that the “big one” could be coming to Southern California… any time now.
Scientists have issued a dire warning that Southern California and the Los Angeles area could be in the path of a major earthquake of 7.0 magnitude or greater.
In the worst case scenario, it could destroy the Los Angeles metro area and rupture hundreds of miles of land in Southern California. A 7.9 earthquake took place back in 1857.
The Los Angeles Times is now reporting that the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll” – there is a clear and present danger:
Southern California’s section of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach.
The San Andreas fault is one of California’s most dangerous, and is the state’s longest fault. Yet for Southern California, the last big earthquake to strike the southern San Andreas was in 1857, when a magnitude 7.9 earthquake ruptured an astonishing 185 miles between Monterey County and the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles.
[…] “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,” Jordan said in the opening keynote talk.
The devastating potential of the fault became clear with a 1857 temblor, which had an estimated magnitude of 7.9… The quake was so powerful that the soil liquefied, causing trees as far away as Stockton to sink. Trees were also uprooted west of Fort Tejon. The shaking lasted 1 to 3 minutes.
According to the leading scientists in the study of tectonic plates and movements, earthquakes must periodically relieve plate pressure (about 16 feet worth of movement every century), but that has not happened on the San Andreas fault during that time period – in fact, the event is overdue.
If they’re right, that makes disaster all but imminent in one of the most heavily populated areas in North America.
Here is a simulation of what could occur:
The L.A. Times also noted:
A 2008 U.S. Geological Survey report warned that a magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the southern San Andreas fault would cause more than 1,800 deaths, 50,000 injuries, $200 billion in damage and severe, long-lasting disruptions. Among the predicted problems: The sewer system could be out of commission for six months.
Additionally, a major, devastating quake would almost certainly interrupt transportation, shipments and commerce, perhaps for months on end. The lack of vital services (such as the sewer system, as noted above) could pose major issues to survival and the resumption of everyday life.
If you are unfortunate enough to live in Los Angeles, you may have some life issues to work out anyway, but… it would be wise to heed these warnings.
If you are caught in a major quake, it is important to avoid being trapped by collapsing buildings or flying debris. Here are some thoughts on surviving the aftermath.
The San Andreas fault is not the only troubling hotspot in the country – Old Faithful has been causing recent worry from Yellowstone, and the New Madrid fault line has DHS/FEMA concerned enough to run multi-agency nationwide drills simulating a major earthquake disaster. Meanwhile, the Ring of Fire has been causing devastation at flashpoints throughout the Pacific ring in many nations.

Let’s get it over with…
Same shit, new day.
SONS OF ODIN NOW HAS CHAPTERS IN 42 STATES
NEW MUSLIM MAYOR IN LONDONISTAN
MERKEL WARNS WHITE NATIONALISTS ARE DESTROYING EUROPE
STUDENTS IN UC SAN DIEGO DEMAND INS AGENTS BE BANNED AND CAMPUS SHOULD BE A SANCTUARY, DEMAND WRITING TRUMP IN CHALK BE A DISCIPLINARY OFFENSE, DEMAND HALAL FOOD, DEMAND 50 ILLEGALS BE HOSTED BY THE UNIVERSITY EACH YEAR, DEMAND A 50% FUNDING INCREASE FOR MINORITY PROGRAMS…
MULTIRACIALISM DOESN’T WORK.
STOP THIS NONSENSE ABOUT INAR “I’M NOT A RACIST”.
DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN A FIRST WORLD AMERICA? YES?
MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN YOU FUCKING CUCKSERVATIVES. IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
MINORITIES WITH UNDER 90 IQ ARE SIMPLY A WASTE OF TAX MONEY AND A DRAG ON SOCIETY. IT TAKES A MINIMUM AVERAGE IQ OF 90 IN A POPULATION TO MAINTAIN A FIRST WORLD COUNTRY. MINORITIES WILL NEVER GET THEIR SHIT TOGETHER NO MATTER HOW MUCH FUCKING MONEY YOU GIVE THEM. NEVER HAS ANYTHING BUT A WHITE MAN EVER BUILT A FIRST WORLD COUNTRY UPON THIS EARTH. DONT FUCKING TELL ME ABOUT ASIA. ASIANS DONT FUCKING UNDERSTAND FREEDOM.
MINORITIES ARENT SMART ENOUGH TO DO FOR THEMSELVES. LOOK AT THE FUCKING CHART OF COUNTRY VS IQ IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME.
Since they took down the thumbs up I will have to say thumbs up . Yea thumbs up on not sugar coating it.
Since they took down the thumbs up I will just type thumbs up
Most agre! I moved from Peoria Ill to the Ozarks just to get away from the shit that comes with them . Way better of life.
This garbage is occurring because of a failed post WW2 attempt / belief to “stop all war from ever occurring” – by way of destroying National Identity and ‘mixing everything up’; WW2 scared the ruling elites immeasurably. Being “white” is no solution, as there are many, many “white” persons in great positions of power THAT ARE CREATING THIS PROBLEM ! in fact they invented it. Don’t just follow the crowd. Whiteness is irrelevant.
And again, from SHTF EARTH CHANGES / PENDRAGON:
“To those things physical already mentioned on this site, let me add the following, which I have seen:
During the Pole Shift which is coming, the earth itself will tilt about thirty degrees or more by perception, to the right, if you are looking at the western hemisphere from space, dead on, from the equator. The peninsula upon which Nome, Alaska sits will be located at the “top” of the world like an “E” lying upon its back.
All of the water in the world will rush from the southwest to the northeast, meaning, all of the coast lines of the world in the eastern pacific and the eastern Atlantic, will be impacted in this way. Low lying lands will be inundated. New land will rise, new mountains will pierce the sea, and new mountains will form on dry land in some places where they do not now exist.
In particular, new land and new mountains will rise south and west of Chile and Argentina, with a new strait on the lower southwest side of the continent as foretold by Cayce. This I too have seen.
New mountains will rise in Southwest Texas. I have named them the Blue Moon Mountains. Let’s see if it sticks.
South Africa will be inundated by water and much of the lower lying area of that nation will remain submerged. Save your Krugerrands. They won’t be making any more of them after the Shift. The mountains at the bottom of the continent in that nation will become an island. If you flee there during the Shift, bring a boat to get off, or plan on staying there for awhile.
The ice caps will continue to melt and this melt may be accelerated by EMP or other natural forces. The Arctic will melt and this water will flood the interior of Canada. If you live in Canada, migrate to the east or interior west along the Rocky Mountains. The Great Plains will be under water.
Hawaii will be inundated with the Shift and swept clean. If you live in Hawaii you can run but you cannot hide. Hawaii will be swept clean. And if Hawaii, all other islands in the Pacific as well.
Southern California will be inundated. Get above 5,000 feet. The ocean will eventually settle about half way up the mountain at Palm Springs. Eventually the day will come when a new suspension bridge, like and of the form of the Golden Gate Bridge, will be built across the mountain divide and seaway. Please name this bridge after me. No one else has ever mentioned it. It’s MY Bridge. Put a monument and a plaque on it, at both ends, to commemorate this prophecy. If nothing else it will give food for thought to those who read it. Seeds are a marvelous thing. Thank you.
If you live in Tucson Arizona, get above 1800 feet. If you live in Phoenix get above 1500 feet as the Pacific will reach Arizona and lap at the base of the Superstition Mountains. The whole of Metro Phoenix will be underwater. Anyone suggesting that Phoenix will be a major seaport will be launching their skiff from the mountains to the north, northeast, and northwest.
The predictions of those annotated upon this site have all missed their initial timeline, but these Changes are beginning to manifest, if only 10 to 15 years late. Forgivable, I think, considering the portent. With this in mind, let me be very specific about a particular event. If it doesn’t happen as predicted, I am in good company. If it does I can take no credit for it, even a blind chicken can find some corn.
Earth Changes are in progress. Progress is slow. Changes in North America will begin in earnest on May 24th 2015 at 4:02 pm, Pacific Time. The epicenter will be Temecula California. LA will be destroyed. That’s pretty damn specific wouldn’t you say? Plan accordingly.”
May 24th is less than three weeks away. I hold my breath every year until May 25th. A massive earthquake in California would precipitate a financial crash and SHTF for all of America. Given the interdependency of the global financial marketplace, the shockwaves from such an event would trigger a global meltdown.
Keep your fingers crossed that we have at least another year before this event. 🙁
Same comment/new day!GM,time for a new phrase!
It’s nice to know I can irritate you so…
Still the same shit, new day.
I do believe such an earthquake would result in far, far more #’s of deaths and $$$$ in damages (after all, it would be a major change of the southern land mass – not to mention all the landfill “jiggling” into quicksand and swallowing those areas …period.
Additionally, IF there is indeed that much tonnage upon the faultline, then an amount equal to or exceeding that is being pressed against the New Madrid (Mississippi River), and several smaller but very deep ‘cracks’.
While it IS TRUE that the “ring of fire” seems to be more active now than at any RECORDED time in history, it could be just a cycle that will go away with time – – after all, Earth has been here millions and millions of years. (It can do just fine with or without us, so live and stop sweating the small shit).
Let’s hope this happens while Obama is still in office.
Why? So he can declare nation wide martial law and bring in the un?
Get out of California. where are those millions going to go?
So many of those Californians have moved into my current home state.
The majority I have met claim to be conservative but they are way more liberal than the people that have lived here for some time. Its reaching a point that most of the conservatives I know are now looking to move.
Looks like liberal blight is just like urban blight.
Back to Mexico…
Same shit WD, new day.
Jim in Va.
To New Jersey of course.
“Where are those millions going?”
The short answer: NOWHERE! The residents of California have LONG known and understood the risks of living there. They have refused to accept the inevitable. Its called, “normalcy bias”. Consequently they will face the consequences of their lack of good judgement.
Eventually, many will migrate north and east. There will be MASSIVE civil unrest, as anticipated by DHS. Violent individuals (mostly illegals) will be incarcerated in the many FEMA CAMPS that are, and will be, located in adjoining States.
These FEMA CAMPS are not intended to house political prisoners; but massive numbers of homeless Americans and ILLEGALS from California with no place to go and nothing to eat. They will be hot. They will be thirsty. And they will be hungry.
Nappy knew what she was doing, because she had the data and correct alternative intelligence. 🙂
I agree with you about the FEMA camps. They were never intended for housing political prisoners. What concerns me is whether those camps can contain the violence when the prisoners become hostile. There’s a natl guard fort nearby that housed Vietnamese refugees as well as Cuban refugees in the 70’s and 80’s respectively. They started rioting and many people became very concerned as to whether or not they could be contained.
From an article written last year: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/07/20/the-really-big-one
“Kenneth Murphy, who directs FEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, says, “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”
In the Pacific Northwest, the area of impact will cover* some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people. When the next full-margin rupture happens, that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America. Roughly three thousand people died in San Francisco’s 1906 earthquake. Almost two thousand died in Hurricane Katrina. Almost three hundred died in Hurricane Sandy. FEMA projects that nearly thirteen thousand people will die in the Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. Another twenty-seven thousand will be injured, and the agency expects that it will need to provide shelter for a million displaced people, and food and water for another two and a half million. “This is one time that I’m hoping all the science is wrong, and it won’t happen for another thousand years,” Murphy says.
In fact, the science is robust, and one of the chief scientists behind it is Chris Goldfinger. Thanks to work done by him and his colleagues, we now know that the odds of the big Cascadia earthquake happening in the next fifty years are roughly one in three. The odds of the very big one are roughly one in ten. Even those numbers do not fully reflect the danger—or, more to the point, how unprepared the Pacific Northwest is to face it. The truly worrisome figures in this story are these: Thirty years ago, no one knew that the Cascadia subduction zone had ever produced a major earthquake. Forty-five years ago, no one even knew it existed.”
If either the BIG ONE in California or the massive NW Event occurs, it will likely trigger the other. 🙁
“In the Pacific Northwest, the area of impact will cover some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington.” That would be delightful. If only New York City, Boston, Chicago, Baltimore and Philadelphia were on a fault line as well.
Thanks for the kind words Sgt. Bill. Where is your trailer parked?
They are. 🙁
Bill,will leave Boston out of it excepting Back Bay built on fill,we have a fault line 30 miles out to see but releases on a regular basis.I know Mass. full of progs as grew up there but tis the birthplace of revolution,we just clear the progs out and retake the countries birth place.
The ring of fire is a dangerous place to hang your hat. It is also beautiful and “back home” for me. I survived a tsunami in northern California after the devastating earthquake in Anchorage. This clip did not detail the tsunami that would come behind the earthquakes. Or the likely volcanic activity. My niece was close when Mount St Helens blew one-third of its mass over a huge area, and my son lives at the foot of Ranier… due to be 20 times worse than St Helens.
None of us get out alive.
I prepare for natural disasters.
I remember the 1964 earthquake tsunami warnings but I
don’t think it shut much down. I remember the Sylmar
earthquake that pancaked the VA hospital( luckily it was empty).
When Mt St. Helens blew I received about an inch of ash and only a dusting in the subsequent eruptions. Lesson learned, keep extra air filters for your cars on the prep list.
Everywhere I have lived as an adult has been declared a disaster area for one reason or another, whether due to earthquake, Super Typhoon, blizzard, drought, volcanoes, flooding, the list goes on. I’ve lived in a lot of places. I have never had to dig deep into any of my primary preps( except the beer and fuel stash). Most things continued to work even though the alternate routes really stacked up traffic.
Where I live now is exposed to virtually every kind of natural disaster you can dream up. We are all pretty well prepared, out of habit(and exposure to dock strikes).
The areas that will have problems are the ones exposed to black swan events. Earth quakes in middle America, volcanoes in Wyoming or Idaho, Tsunamis on the East coast, Massive black-outs, anywhere. Preparing for the “impossible”, is not an easy mindset.
The house across the street from my mom in Dallas was destroyed by a tornado. She just picked up trash. Natural disasters ate bad, but the medical profession kills more people every uear.
Interestingly enough you can prep for that medical stuff also.
When my wife had her colonoscopy, I introduced myself to the
staff and sat right outside the door, I would have stayed inside if they would have let me. When they tried to sneak her of to the recovery area, I chased them down and demanded an explanation. They knew someone was there and very interested.
I purposely wore my black BDU’s and my NRA hat. They did a very good job. If you have someone in the hospital, you move in to the hospital. The dining areas have good food, there are showers and bathrooms, plus it is very clean.
I was once visiting with my son in-law to see his dying mother in a hospital. The woman, Vivian, was surrounded by her family. She was crying in pain and it was profoundly affecting the family.
I walked into the nurses station and asked about her pain treatment. The nurses said she is OK. I explained they had better do something now or they would have a bigger problem than a crying, dying old woman. Vivian got her shots, and some comfort.
Medical people are very dedicated, but sometimes they get inured to the “meat” they process. When they have to explain themselves to a lay person, they tend to pay attention.
Be polite, but be firm, ask questions, and take notes(You are already on camera)!
I hear ya. I was there every day when my mom was dying. It shifted things. When I had abdominal surgery and could not get someone to stop my IV from suckling my blood into the bag… at 3 am… I called the main switchboard and asked for help. Boy that got a response! I have no faith anymore. I can’t say if things are worse or whether I just lost those rose colored glasses.
No matter what hypothetical disasters are discussed, these are the things that affect us all.
What a beautiful place Cali is… I wouldn’t want to be driving in rush hour freeway traffic when the big one hits.
Anything can happen
Give me a break. I’ve lived on this earth quake fault most of my life. So when it goes, it goes. It’s always ready. And it ain’t as big a deal as people want you to believe. If you have basic stuff like drinking water and canned food (with manual can opener), some flashlights, warm coats and pants for staying warm at night with no gas or electricity for a few weeks, usually two or three if it’s a big one; almost everyone comes out just fine. Actual casualties, even in big quakes are minimal because most buildings are built on roller skates. Actually we have really safe building requirements in this State you guys are always knocking. No matter what you say. California blondes are the most beautiful women in the world and even the men are pretty so Phuck it, I’m going to the beach and to hell with all this bull shit.
As General Johnson sang in 1980:
“Carolina girls, best in the world.”
We lost fort McMurray to a wild fire burning out of control. A good size town that extracted tar sands the evacuees are starting to arrive here by the hour 11 buses came into Edmonton this morning.
This is the second town we’ve lost in 2 years slave lake and now fort mac
Scary stuff, and its not even all out fire season yet
The fire at last count has consumed over 1600 yes sixteen hundred buildings. No oil and gas infrastructure is at risk yet. We have high winds here in the north and not alot of rain.
One of our provincial government made a comment about it being karma. We have a very anti-oil government here in Alberta.
Our oil production is down 33% now. And no worker housing. Be 5 years before that is rebuilt
The evacuees are still streaming in in my town the campgrounds are full the even opened the ball diamond for RVs bus loads went to Edmonton and checked into our equivalent of a FEMA camp 90% lined right up to get a seat
Things are not looking good.
This wildfire is supposed to get much worse. My self I’m about 250 miles south of it for now.
Beaver,time to pull out and hook up the garden hose!OK,hope all goes as well as possible for you folks and hope you help a little if needed to keep folks taken care of but also moving along at least to those who have other places they can reside.Times like this bring out the best and worst in folks,believe it will bring out your best.
I supported Cruz until he dropped out. And yes, I am aware of all the canards thrown his way, which are just that – canards.
I will not vote for Trump. There are also serious issues with him – past liberal support, chums with the Clintons, women are generally not supportive of him, and yes, his campaign manager was working with RINO Mitch McConnell, etc., so don’t give me this lily white stuff about him. I am also a bit disgusted that a certain group of people seem to live bombast and voting for a reality show star (wasn’t Obungler enough???). Nevertheless, he is a zillion times better, and not to vote at all is a vote for Hilary, so yes, I will vote for Trump.
My distaste is this. There was all this whining about 3rd party runs, how when Trump got 51% of the vote (or whatever) but got winner take all, that was all well and fine, he would whine when the opposite occurred. But here is the thing, which disgusts me about some (not all by any means) Trump supporters: If he fell short with votes, a lot of Trump cultists were going to conduct a scorched earth policy – no Trump, no dice… we will sit out, not vote etc. Yet, these same people now expect Cruz supporters to get on board with the nominee Trump – which most of us are doing. BUT, IN A REVERSE SITUATION, WOULD WE HAVE SEEN THAT LEVEL OF MATURITY FROM THE TRUMP SUPPORTERS? Probably not, at least to the same proportion. So, that leaves real distaste for some of these people who became the mirror image to those nitwit Obama “Yes we can” chanters.
Yeah, I’ll vote for Trump now. Hilary will put a stake throught the heart of what is left of the republic otherwise, particularly relative to SOTU. But there is a very sour taste in immature attitudes of SOME (not all) Trump supporters, and I know some people that were so turned off they won’t vote for him at all due to this horse manure antics. And no, Cruz was not having sex with porcupines or armadillos… but thanks for those canards as well.
For me, it is what it is, and we need to move forward with the best – not perfect – candidate, which is now Trump. Would that the Trump cultists (vs. the Trump supporters, which is a very different group) had the same level of maturity, not to mention political acumen.
Seems our country, or more accurate, our politicians desperately need a “hate target”, something or someone upon which to declare WAR (really it’s someone, how can war be waged with inanimate objects).
The BIG question is where BeInformed is! ???? He knows.
OK it will be bad if it dose goes off. The people know this and if they are there and it dose go it their fault.
Its like living in a hurricane zone and wanting help from everyone to rebuild time and time again.
There is nothing we can do about it. We can prepare for it and have things ready to for it. That is it.
If it dose go off under Obullshit. I believe he would use this to declare Martial Law.
Why is now we are saying and talking about San Andreas?
Is it just me or is my Spider Scenes kicking in. Can they cause an earth quake? If so what about New Madrid?
Can you see a False Flag? Just wondering!!!!!
Haarp could do it. We just don’t know when. For southerners summertime would be bad, vice versa north. We are prepped and on stable ground, so it won’t matter. Fallout might be an issue, but we’ll figure it out.
Sewer system huh?
Well we’ll finally have to deal with all our own shit. HAH.
Worrying about something not one of us has any control over is the epitome of foolishness. Fear is the loosh dark things feed on. Don’t feed the beast.
Live fearless and with purpose.
Tonight is the new moon AND perigee.
The maximum Tidal stress for the next year.
If it doesn’t snap now, we’re probably good for 6 months (perigee and a FULL moon) or a year.
You can’t just look at how it’ll affect residents in CA, or for the New Madrid fault, the residents there.
Either of these major earthquake events unleashed will affect everybody everywhere in the country because of all the energy, products manufactured and foods both produced there and that normally have to ship through there from elsewhere.
You might not have any of the local infrastructure damage, they’ll suffer, where you are, but you could find yourself equally having to go without many things or services dependent on producers or shippers there.
Also, businesses anywhere in this Just-In-Time distribution system, dependent on any components produced there or transported through there, could be shut down far from any of the directly affected regions.
The unanticipated and cascading interconnected repercussions felt all across the country will both surprise and terrify many.
if LA and a lot of dimokrats are destroyed just what is the problem ?
Remember BI? He and I where on agreement that first the Cascadia and San Andreas would let go. And then the New Madrid next.Im about 200 miles west of new Madrid mo. Im not too worried where I live is rock and its solid rock as deep as you want to drill.
Then you must live on the craton of the North American Plate, which I suspect is probably just good luck choosing your parents, unless you have much better knowledge than the average American idiot, and specifically chose to live there. Do me a favor and read up on the geological history of your area. I can’t read everything I’m interested in, and others might appreciate your work. Thanks. E-mail me your findings?
California has worn me quite thin… the whole country is teetering on the brink. I read the earths mantle is crumbling in the southeast US. TPTB need some bigtime disasters to wipe out the bulk of the population, seeing as how the GMO’s, chemtrails, worldwide nuclear radiation, Big Pharmas vaccinations and chemical death slow suicide and whatever I left out aren’t getting the desired result done quick enough. The people are getting too snippy. Nuclear war anyone.
A quote from probably Jimmy Buffets best tune of all time. Makes me want to scrounge through my old tapes.
Fault lines wound very tight,who cares.The folks of this country and hell,the world are wound even tighter,folks have had it with the bullshit from govt.s/their banker masters and puppets that are point of their spear,seems to me a lot more damage possible from that then the earthquakes/combine and recipe for very interesting times!
Humm, the scary thing on here today is actually the good informative articles. No shemitahs or blood moons crap. Keep up the good work for a change.
We’re doooomed! I’d pull my hair out but my ex already did.
Given the social conditions in LA, would it really be that great of a loss ? Get rid of a lot of illegals that way, eh?
