Many experts are now warning that the San Andreas fault in California is now ripe for a major earthquake. Not only that, but should it occur, another earthquake could strike the Bay Area resulting in damages that may be impossible to financially correct.
Although a major earthquake around 100 miles away from Los Angeles may not seem like a big deal, experts warn against taking a lackadaisical stance. A magnitude 8.2 earthquake is far from ordinary and there’s plenty of geological evidence of past occurrences in Southern California. New evidence foreshadows grave consequences for a hugely populated region that’s already on high alert for the next “Big One.” A study published earlier this year concluded that the land on either side of the San Andreas fault has been pushing against the other at a rate of more than 1 inch per year since 1857, and the tensions between the plates are eventually going to give out.
“So, you expect that amount of accumulation of energy will be released in the future in a large-magnitude rupture, somewhere along the San Andreas,” said USGS research geologist and study lead author Kate Scharer.
Seismologist Lucy Jones predicts that a San Andreas earthquake beginning at the Salton Sea could be as strong as an 8.2 if it got all the way to Paso Robles. That powerful of a quake could result in massive loss of life and damages. An 8.2 earthquake would produce far more energy than what was produced by the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima. But the bigger issue is that all of Southern California would be hit at once. Yet, this isn’t new information. Ned Field of the US Geological Survey tried to warn Californians back in 2015 that a major quake is likely to occur, and soon.
“We think Southern California is locked and loaded, that the stresses have really built up, and when things start unleashing, they could unleash for years,” U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Ned Field told Smithsonian.com in 2015. The last major earthquake near Los Angeles hit Fort Tejon in 1857 and registered a 7.9, making the region long overdue, especially considering the amount of pressure built up on the fault line.
“With 300 miles of fault all going in the same earthquake, you then have everybody affected at the same time,” says Jones. “The San Andreas is the one that will produce the earthquake that’s going to cause damage in every city” in Southern California. However, “it’s not so much about dying in the earthquake. It’s about being miserable after the earthquake and people giving up on Southern California,” says Jones. Catastrophic damage to the region’s infrastructure could take more than a year to repair, which could in turn wreck the local economy and drive people to abandon Los Angeles in a mass exodus. But that still isn’t the worst part of newest predictions.
Not only could a major San Andreas earthquake damage most of Southern California’s cities, a quake could cause another to occur on the Hayward fault in the Bay Area. The Hayward fault which is considered the most likely to cause the next major earthquake could be set off by a quake along the San Andreas fault, Jones warned. The well-populated Bay Area would then also be in major distress in addition to Southern California, possibly elevating the number of victims to a staggering and incomprehensible number.
Emergency preparedness could be essential for those in California and for those who haven’t prepared for the natural disaster, now may be time to consider it. Although in all fairness, experts have been saying this fault line would cause a quake for years and it hasn’t yet. But logic and history do dictate that eventually, time will be up.
Gods Judgment on the Bay area…
Hope them greasers and libtards can tread water, if the pyroclastic gasses don’t get them first.
May the planet crack.
If there was a major earthquake along the New Madrid fault line, the ENTIRE country would be affected.
15 Nuclear Reactors on New Madrid Fault Line
As noted in the article, buildings are NOT built to earthquake code, as in California. A major earthquake would damage infrastructure, especially buildings, roads and especially bridges. Then, trucks and trains would not be able to transport goods, especially FOOD.
We have seen the damage an earthquake in Japan did to ONE reactor. Reportedly, radiation from Fukushima is still spreading across the Pacific Ocean.
If MULTIPLE nuclear reactors were affected by a large earthquake, great areas of land would not be suitable for farming for a LONG time.
Currently, about 2% of the population grows the food that feeds the other 98%.
The last major earthquake on this fault line included the area known as the “breadbasket” of the country, where the great majority of the wheat and corn in the U.S is grown. (See map in article)
The east coast has a large population concentration extending up and down the Atlantic coast. Should food distribution be affected, soon after the large cities in the east (New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Washington, Atlanta, etc.) would experience food shortages.
You would see a “golden horde” of people leaving the cities and heading to the country, where they believe there would be food.
KY, FOUR nuclear reactors were affected by the tsunami and earthquake in Japan– and are still being affected, getting worse all the time! :/
I’m a dual US/Canadian citizen, but was born in SF. It’s transverse fault, so actually they will end up off the Aleutian Islands eventually, as they slip north. But I DO hear your sentiment! I DEEPLY resent how the fascist left moved to CA, OR, and British Columbia, and brought their filth with them. CA. used to be a conservative state. Now it is a lunatic asylum.
But, let’s LEARN from what the fascist left has done to the state (and province). Personally, I will NEVER give up the fight against the fascist left.
Home Grown Food Summit – excellent speakers

Test posted this Video link a few articles back. ht tps://youtu.be/MeM_l5mkyYc?t=844 Nice video, but the Church is just as corrupt, with their 501c3 charity status which will not allow them to be political. Lefty Politics is what’s destroying this country. So if the Church wants to make REAL change, then Dump the 501c3 Charity Status and get active in politics to make a difference. Otherwise the Church is just another tentacle pawn of the Government sitting in silence and counting their ill gotten loot.
Checking out the next article and saw a book on Real Estate written by a “Crook”. No kidding. It should go good with another book (both featured at the bottom of the article), “Real Estate for Dummies”. Seriously ??
The Brits fight Back, “Eye for an Eye.” Yesterday, in London at a Mosque, a van plowed into 10 Muslims coming out of the Mosque. 1 Muslim dead, 8 Muzzies hospitalized and 2 others treated at the scene. After the van hit the Mussies, a man got out of the van, unfortunately he did not get away of have a chase van to escort him away. The Mussies said they caught and held him down and they said he was “WHITE and SPOKE ENGLISH.” lol Its being classified as a Terror attack.
Bout time, I’d classify it as an “EYE FOR AN EYE” Blowback.
The wall along Ca’s western border should include Earthquake protection. Funnel the beaners back into Mehico.
I sure would like to see a picture of the area… :/
It’s long overdue…Californication can fall into the ocean and good riddance!
please Lord, if you’re up there, make it happen. i will gladly give mine, and my family’s lives to purge this country of the scourge spreading throughout the country from california……and make no mistake, it’s SPREADING across the country as these simps move north and west. i have experienced it myself….in jesus’ name, amen
sounds like i better watch the movie “san andreas” again to brush up on how it’s gonna be…..it was that movie that brought to my attention that you could set a helicopter on auto-pilot, jump out and save some people, and get back into the pilot seat, and go off into the sunset….didn’t realize that until then…..LOL….but there IS a LOT of great prepper info in there if you have a good filter.
BOD, I realize you may not be entirely serious in your post, but even if not your post is retarded. Abraham, in Genesis, prayed to God to SPARE the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. He argued God down to sparing the cities if only a certain few were righteous within them.
Well, dangit, I’m a Christian who happens to find himself in Southern California, and I for one, while agreeing with you in principle would have to wholeheartedly disagree with your “prayer” in practice!!
Any of you people advocating mass death and destruction of innocent lives so the “tide of liberal evil” or whatever you want to call it can be stemmed…seriously? You’re just as evil as they are!
Remember, with us “Good Guys” the end NEVER justifies the means. It’s all about the MEANS, gentleman. It’s all about how you get to the end because, if you end up practicing the evil that you seem to be advocating because you think the end is justified, you’ll end up becoming as evil as the people you despise before your journey’s end.
Take care, and be careful throwing the Son of God’s name around like that BOD.
if the meek shall inherit the earth, what’s gonna happen to U.S. animals?
You mean the place that makes up much of this countries economy? The home of the tech industry? The defense industry? Entertainment? Grows much of our food? If California goes, the rest of us go the next week when our economy collapses and we starve.
San Fran soon to be home of International House of Pancakes.
We won’t starve. Contrary to what a lot of people think, food can actually grow in other states just as well. We don’t have to have the crops that will only grow in California. Besides, a lot of those can also grow in Florida, such as oranges.
Nonsense. We can easily adjust. If there is a demand, industries will spring up elsewhere.
With all the beaners, I suspect CA has not been a “donor” state for a while.
sounds like a lot of LIBERALS will die…..where’s the problem?
About the only thing wrong with Kalifornica, is the libtards as almost every issue in Commieland is self-inflicted.
It is falls into the ocean with out taking the libtards away, then it is just a waste of good land-mass. It will only make matters worse if those libtards survive because more of us with be exposed to their toxic behavior as they flee to the remaining land-mass
…another good reason not to let so many illegals into our country…where will all the californians move to – the ones who make it out of there in time ?
well, barb, they will move across the street from you…like they did ME 35 years ago in oregon….and there goes the neighborhood!…NOW western oregon has become a bastion of liberalism/communism….i been looking for a place to move to from Kali, but oregon is now out of the question….and my BROTHER lives there in our home we inherited when our parents passed…..californians, and radiation make it a bad place to be. there’s a LOT of better places now, but when I was growing up, oregon was HEAVEN….or at LEAST it was in the same zipcode…..and the simps of the world are worried about muslims and mexicans invading. PFFT! californians are MUCH worse.
BCOD, know what you mean, lived/grew up on an island in the Chesapeake Bay. Now I can’t even go there without becoming nauseous. Glad I’m away from there. No longer know the natives. Everything changes.
BCOD, let all the illegals move into Cali and when san andreas goes…..
Come to Texas…….or “Free America” as we refer to it here.
PFFT! texas is the best place to find the “changing of the guard”….if they keep up THIS pace in 5 years everyone will be wearing hi-jabs.
Ya, i have to agree on that last statement, so far i like mostly all the Mexicans ive met, and even most of the few Muzlims, but not so much on the california transplants,,,
All of the GOOD people in Cali need to get out of there if at all possible. Cali is doomed no matter how you look at it.
By my count that’s 37 people and 8 dogs. not that big a deal I can put some of them up.
Paranoid,me uncle,his kids and grandkids,we are in the 40’s number of people now,that said,I and other family can take them in.
Oh well ‘Lot’ couldn’t even find one. Fire and brimstone baby and pillars of salt. Can’t wait!
Damn DB….. not so loud! I’m hoping the majority of congress critters will be vacationing there.
PO’d Patriot, LOL! Put ALL of DC in Cali and a lot of problems would be solved.
i agree, braveheart, BOTH of them should get OUT as soon as possible!
I’m glad I’m here in Oklahoma with the tornados. At least I can see them and know they travel in a certain direction, and have a means of protection against them. I’ve lived with them all my life; actually been hit by two of them. An earth quake is different, not much you can do. Waiting
I hope I live to see it
Predicting an earthquake in Southern California is about one of the easiest things you can do.
The State of Illinois takes another Financial Hit.
Powerball, Mega Millions to Halt Illinois Lottery Due to State’s Inability to Pay Winners
06-17-2017 • https://mishtalk.com, by Mish
Both Powerball and Mega Millions Lotteries Will Pull Out of Illinois on June 30 due to the budget impasse.
Yep say it ain’t so, No more lottery in IL. You know when you hit the Lottery in IL and win, and all they give you is a piece of Paper that says IOU written all over it, you are pretty F*cked.
I was wondering how long it would take for this to occur…maybe other states will follow suit?
Yellowstone is showing extra activity. Earthquakes pale in comparison to mega volcanic explosions.
Sleep well knowing you have prepared as well as you could, or is there something you need to do. There always seems to be more.
Buy American. Better products. Keep your Countrymen in business.
But Budweiser is foriegn owned?
My son is touring with his band..we were from Ca. He said that Atlanta is now worse than Oakland Ca. Everywhere is a shit hole…except here and a few places in Montana and Wyoming.
That could be a real problem if it blows,,,
B, I live only a 1-hour drive from the New Madrid fault. Once I relocate to the BOL in GA I’ll be a lot further away and have a much better chance of survival. My present location will most likely be destroyed.
DB hurry and relocate. B you better do the same. Waiting
Rock n roll bub
yes, i live in the hi-desert, and drive right OVER the san andreas fault several times a week. a friend was at the beach a few years ago, and said “you know how many bridges there are in the 90 miles from the beach to home”? 30, was his answer….yikes! we ARE really screwed. but you got yer OWN earthquake problems over THERE, kula….good luck to all.
Our biggest problems are all related to stupid greedy fucking politicians
sounds like we got a LOT in common……….
Reading Ezekiel this morning… don’t go there much. But happened upon a few verses that talked about the calmities that would befall those who live in the city as opposed to those in the country. Interesting. Those in the city die of the sword. Those in the country die of pestilence (disease). Those who remain die of famine (lack of food). I’d never read those words from a pepper point of view. Made perfect sense. Although that prophecy is specific to the geographical area of the Levant, it follows that population dense areas will succumb to WROL conditions quickly while outliers will have poor access to medicine and hospitals. Then, those who remain will find it harder and harder to find food.
It wouldn’t take much to disrupt LA, in terms of transport or emotional stability in the face of food and water shortages.
well, the bible was WRITTEN by preppers, fercrisesakes!
Nailbanger, for Cali it’s gonna be “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” and “Shake, Rattle, And Roll”.
OMG!!! You mean GOOGLE and FAKEBOOK might fall into the Pacific?
Oh the horrors!
Sadly, eve a 9.9 quake wouldn’t do 1 percent of the damage the fascist left has already done to the state.
Quake quake quake quake!
I’m not clairvoyant but past practice tells me the response will go something like this:
1. Earthquake hits causing massive damage
2. Democrat controlled state with no nothing political appointees in charge of departments drop the ball like Katrina.
3. Trump will immediately use Federal Assets to respond.
4. The Democrats will chastise Trump every step of the way sighting obscure insignificant failures that are of little consequence while intentionally shifting blame from state responsibility to federal making the large issues appear to be Federal responsibility.
Kevin2, DING DING DING DING! We have a winner! I also predict that outcome for Cali. Typical members of the left. Blame everyone but THEMSELVES for their own problems.
Throughout government, bureaucratic heads are appointed not because they are the best and most capable canidate because that criteria has absolutely nothing to do with filling the position. Both party’s are to blame as GW Bush had a FEMA head that ran a horse track and the screw up of a lack of response was at the local, parish, state and federal level with New Orleans and Katrina. I think Trump would be kicking some people in the ass unlike GW Bush who fretted over areas of responsibility.
Kevin2, agreed. The response to katrina was a clusterf#$% at all levels. I’m sure Trump would make Bush look just like the moron he was, and still is as far as I’m concerned.
“Sadly, eve a 9.9 quake wouldn’t do 1 percent of the damage the fascist left has already done to the state.”
If it was massive with destruction on the west coast rivaling a major war its economic impact could be a black swan event triggering a global financial calamity of catastrophic proportions. Things like this don’t operate in a vacuum.
Yea, and they call us deplorable
TEST; Thats enough for me to wish for a quake!
Not as big as the Cascadia Subduction that’s off the coast of Oregon and Washington. San Andreas will be bad but CS will be worse. How many do you think will be high when it hits? California dreaming on such a pretty day (as the song goes). Doubtless, global warming will be blamed!
Millions of Cali’s. Dead . Is that good or bad?
More reasons to stay away from California, as if I needed some.
I’ve never been west of Kansas, and might not go west in the future.
Texan, AMEN to that one. I was in Cali once back in the 80s and that was one time too many for me even then.
Taking a moment to supervise the dogs fertilizing the lawn.
Happy fathers day all
@Deplorable Braveheart: Hope you can get away from the New Madrid fault sooner than later. When it last moved dramatically the area was lightly populated. Not the case now and many do not even know that fault exists.
Tex, the New Madrid is a real puzzler – there seems to be two takes on this one (but… better not be wrong if it is Door One!). It may or may not go. I am MUCH more concerned about Cascadia.
Texan, thanks for that. I have another trip scheduled for August there but can go sooner if circumstances dictate it. most of my supplies are already there and my old van is totally loaded up and ready to go on a moment’s notice.
OFF TOPIC BUT IMPORTANT
US says it downed Syrian warplane that attacked US-backed fighters
Attacking US backed fighters in a nation where you have no business being is not attacking the US.
I suspect that Russia will be flying combat air patrols to protect Syrian aircraft. This is getting dangerous, very dangerous. Its all over a natural gas line. WWIII over market share of natural gas sales to Europe. That actually makes Charles Manson look sane.
Kevin2, I saw that article earlier. Our forces have no legitimate basis to be in Syria. Trump should order a full withdrawal of our forces from Syria NOW before things get out of hand. Next thing you know either some of our ground forces get attacked or one of our aircraft will get shot down. And now 4000 more troops are being sent to Afghanistan? BRING ALL THE TROOPS HOME NOW! We need them at home much worse than we do overseas.
Looks like retribution.
Can’t wait to watch the brown people burn.
Yea most likely sometime along the line its coming but to just keep digging the same old type article up again and again is just fear mongering.
Secession or earthquake, either will do.
