Experts ID fault that could unleash ‘earthquake from hell’ on L.A.

A fault that runs beneath the ground of Los Angeles that sent the city on unsteady ground over the weekend could actually be the one that causes the massive earthquake that devastates the entire community, experts warned.

The San Andreas Fault may be better known — but this one, the Puente Hills Fault, that sent shockwaves on Friday actually runs directly beneath downtown Los Angeles and into Hollywood, the blog Newser reported. And it’s capable of delivering a quake that hits a 7.5 on the Richter scale, with the potential of causing $250 billion in damage and killing 18,000, U.S. Geological Survey researchers find, The Associated Press reported

That'll be something to see wont it?  Im glad in the UK we have relatively stable geology!  OK we have had very minor tremors, but we seem to get away with it all.

Apart from rain and floods that is, then hosepipe bans!

In California it is only a matter of time.  A large destructive quake will devastate the area at some point and may will die.  I just hope that they continue to prepare so they can minimize the effects.

this is certainly not news, it's just because of the recent quake that they're rehashing this doomsday stuff.

i for sure won't be there when it hits.
i figure they are going to get a massive quake - it's inevitable,
what i was pointing out is that it's been pretty much known for a long while that it could happen anytime, and that this 'news' item was kind of beside the point.

Isn't there always supposed to be a massive quake from hell or whatever for somewhere in California?

I'm not saying it isn't possible, but crying wolf a thousand times isn't helping the matter.

If it goes I hope they just bulldoze the remains of the city and start over.  It would be cheaper.  Though I wanted that for New Orleans as well...

For as long as I lived in L.A. we were always told that the next one could be the big one. But it really does not need to get that big for the city to be completely devastated. Today a 8.2 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Chile. There is a tsunami warning and the entire cost is being evacuated. That's all it would take to bring L.A. to it's knees.

Yeah, no. Whilst a 7.5 is still large, it's by no means the biggest and meanest in terms of earthquakes. For example, I live within 100 miles of a subduction zone called the Hikurangi Trench which is capable of producing an earthquake of magnitude 8.5 or larger.
