California fault line
is ´tectonic time bomb´ for
disastrous earthquake, researchers say

Fox News, by Travis Fedschun

Residents in the San Francisco Bay Area are living along a fault that is a "ticking time bomb" that could generate an earthquake that could kill hundreds, according to a report released Wednesday. The U.S. Geological Survey said in a report called the "HayWired Scenario" that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake on Hayward Fault located under Oakland could kill as many as 800 people and injure up to 18,000. “This fault is what we sort of call a tectonic time bomb,” USGS earthquake geologist emeritus David Schwartz told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s just waiting to go off.” Researches said the Hayward Fault is dangerous because it runs through

"The sky is falling. The sky is falling". With Kalifornia griped in a political struggle of "tectonic" proportions, what will kill them first? A major disaster by Mother nature or one man-made by delusional dystopia thinking politicians. The choice is theirs as that thing called fate awaits them. If it´s the "big one", at least all the homeless will get a good bath. s/o.

Be nice now. A lot of us out here are conservative.

Wait a minute. San Francisco Bay Area?

Never mind. Fire at will.

Ho Hum. They can write all they want and waste taxpayer dollars. Unlike AGW they can´t predict anything solid in terms of time and dimension. But give them money for AGW studies and they are so precise. $$$s

I´ve often wondered why the Planetariums in CA were built so close to the ocean (& near the faults) since earthquakes & tsunamis are a potential problem. Then again, how many of those predicting disaster live on the coast, or near a fault, as well?

I may not have any respect for the Leftists who are deliberately spending California into bankruptcy, but I don´t want to see people dying in a cataclysmic quake either. With the new fault lines that have been discovered in the past decade or so, California isn´t the only state who will feel the devastation. Oregon and Washington will get some of the quake as well. Quake lines extend from Canada down to Baja.

People in the midwest shouldn´t get cocky. The New Meridian fault line has the capacity to totally divide the nation from top to bottom if it goes off as well. That is prime farm country, and it would be not only devastated, but the country would be split east from west as well. Take a look at where most of the food processors are now in this country. Right smack dab in the middle of the New Meridian fault line.

Every year about this time. There’s a real cycle for this…in the media.

All fault lines could probably be called “time bombs”. We like the idea that ours give a little now and then which releases some of the tension. Also keeps the chicken littles, the seismologists like Lucy Jones, and the California bashers happy.

A prominent real estate broker told me at dinner the other night that SoCal real estate is booming. Those leaving for other states are retirees. Those arriving are business and professional people with families…

Even today’s Los Angeles Times says that things are looking up.

Ignorance fuels those at LCom who don’t understand that California has more than 5 million registered Republicans and any number of fellow voters among the Declined to State (no party preference stated) voters. We’re watching the crazy governor and our Mexican legislators dig their own graves. (That’s not a metronome you hear; it’s a pendulum.)

#7 - I believe you´re talking about the New Madrid Fault near New Madrid, MO that caused a series of earthquakes in 1811-12. It caused the Mississippi River to briefly flow north, and created Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee. It was felt as far away as Virginia and South Carolina.

We lived through the 1989 Loma Prieta quake which was a 7. 2 and focused in the Santa Cruz area. Believe me, no one wants to have to go through another like that. The Oakland 580 freeway collapsed and lives were lost. The freeways buckled in our area. The destruction focused in San Francisco which was about 70 miles away. They had a lot of fires and damage. But people who live there don’t listen to the predictors and buildings continually rise. The faults are locked and ready to cause devastation. No one is prepared.

We live about 4 miles south of Lake Erie, and carry earthquake insurance on our Homeowner´s policy, because there is a fault line out in Lake Erie running parallel with the shore.
There is an occasional tremor, but nothing big - so far.

My family has been living on the San Andres fault and the more recently discovered Hayward fault for over 100 years. I have heard this my entire life. I am sure eventually we will have a big earthquake again. In the meantime other states have had many many terrible natural disasters. You cannot live in fear.

I survived the Good Friday Earthquake in Anchorage Alaska on March 27, 1964. I was at 15th & "D" Street when it hit (9.2 for five minutes). I was in Simi Valley for the 71 quake (a 6.8); on the corner of Geary and Stockton in DT San Francisco for the Loma Prieta earthquake (a 7.2) and just under the Hollywood sign for the Northridge quake (7.2).

Until you´ve been in a 9.2 you have no idea what an earthquake really is. Everything you think is secure, such as the ground is not as it turns to jello.

And when, not if the Cascadia fault decides to rip, you have no idea just how back things can get.

The Cascade subduction zone that runs from NoCall to north of Vancouver Island in Canada will result in an earthquake in excess of 9.0 and will probably last of about 7 to 10 minutes with vertical earth movements of over 30 feet. It will most likely tigger the San Andreas and Hayward faults to release as well. Then you have Mount Diablo in the middle of the East Bay, it´s a dormant volcano, not an extinct volcano. It could go too.

Everything that is built on fill; see Foster City, Milpitas, Fremont, Hayward, SFO Airport, Alameda, the Marina District and most of San Fransisco; and the list goes on and on.

But as then mayor Aliato (sp?) said in the 1970s; "If you have to send your last days on earth, wouldn´t you much rather do it in San Francisco?"

Wow, #16! you sound like the guy who´s survived a shark attack, being bitten by a brown bear, and bitten by a snake.

Thanks for the interesting information on the West Coast fault system.

I once watched a documentary on that Alaska quake. Some people rode out the tsunami on their fishing boats, as it surged into the gulf/bay.

It´s worthwhile to read about this really Big One and what kind of damage to lightly populated areas, and how much damage subsequent trans-Pacific tsunamis can cause, as this one did.

To our Californian philosophical brethren, no-one really wishes harm on you, and not even on those who wish us harm.

Re #12, if God is meting out punishment in the form of earthquakes and other extreme Acts of Nature, beyond human control, then what are we to make of the recent hurricanes, the disasters that hit many states - tornadoes, etc., etc., etc.?

On the other hand it could be said that God blesses California with the most beautiful natural scenery, the most gorgeous weather, a bountiful supply of locally grown fruits and vegetables and other foods, flowers beyond belief…. And so on.

We are blessed in many ways that those in other states may not understand. In California, life is not all about government.

What Act of God-free paradise to you live in?

Re #18, I’ve never seen a California LDotter wish anyone in any other state harm. On the contrary, we hung in through hurricanes and all manner of disasters, on the old Weekend Roundtables and other special threads, offering comfort, companionship, alternative communication to our brothers and sisters in harm’s way.

Nope, only Californians seem to draw the short straw around here now. I miss the old LCom.

#16 makes several good points, but one mistake: Mount Diablo is not and never was a volcano. It is what they call a diapir. Most of the mountain is a mass of serpentine. Because serpentine is much less dense than the minerals in the rocks overlying it (e.g., quartz, feldspar, and calcite), it is getting slowly squeezed upward. It´s exactly the same process that makes those salt domes under the Gulf of Mexico area.

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last January, President Trump insisted that his trademark "America First" policy “does not mean America alone.” But when Mr. Trump pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal last week, reneging on an agreement negotiated and supported by close US allies, he displayed a bluntly unilateralist outlook that suggests he cares little whether or not the US is isolated. Whatever impact Trump´s decision has on Iran and its nuclear program, it has sent a message to governments around the globe about Washington´s willingness to live up to its word,

The United States and Gulf partners imposed additional sanctions on Lebanon’s Hezbollah leadership on Wednesday, targeting its top two officials, Hassan Nasrallah and Naim Qassem. The US Treasury Department said four other individuals were also sanctioned, as was the group ISIS in the Greater Sahara, which was designated as a foreign terrorist organization. It was the third round of sanctions announced by Washington since the United States pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal last week. Wednesday’s sanctions targeted members of the primary decision-making body of Hezbollah, Treasury said in a statement.

In June 2012, a tall, mysterious figure turned up at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He rang the bell, walked in and asked for political asylum. It was Julian Assange. Days earlier, he had lost his long legal fight against extradition to Sweden, where two women accused him of rape. Soon afterwards, the left-leaning then president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, agreed to Assange’s request, precipitating a major diplomatic row with the British government. And a full-blown siege. Metropolitan police officers swarmed outside the building, ready to arrest Assange should he venture out. It was against this febrile backdrop that Correa authorised a

Special counsel Robert Mueller has withstood relentless political attacks, many distorting his record of distinguished government service. But there’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe. In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.

Conrad Black’s erudite biography of Donald J. Trump is different from the usual in mediis rebus accounts of first-year presidents. He avoids the Bob Woodward fly-on-the-wall unattributed anecdote, and “they say” gossip mongering. Nor is the book a rush-to-publish product from former insiders of the Trump campaign or administration. Instead, Black, a prolific and insightful historian, adopts the annalistic method in carefully tracing Trump’s earliest years in business through his various commercial misadventures, financial recoveries, and sometimes wild antics. Black’s aim is to illustrate how much of what Trump has done since announcing his presidential candidacy in summer 2015 is

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller
