It’s L.A.’s Fault

Researchers have found a new seismic fault line under the city of Los Angeles, running for 50 kilometers between Orange County and Beverly Hills, running right under downtown LA.

The good news is that earthquakes along this fault are relatively infrequent. They point to the last major earthquake that occured 7-8,000 years ago. The bad news is that the nature of this fault would make it a very strong earthquake when it does happen.
