Scientists Have Just Announced Something TERRIFYING Is About To Happen!
There is an 800-mile-long crack in California that runs from the Salton Sea in the south to Cape Mendocino in the north, crossing Vineyard subway stations, power lines, and water mains. Millions of people live and work alongside the crack, with many passing it on a daily basis via the 966 roads that cross it.
The majority of people don’t give it much thought, but in reality, that crack, which is the San Andreas Fault line, has the potential to destroy lives and bring the national economy to its knees in the blink of an eye. Most people are familiar with the San Andreas Fault, a monster that divides California from south to north as two tectonic plates grind against each other, threatening large earthquakes.
It has already happened in the past, and residents have been warned yet again that another disaster is on the way. In fact, the earthquake occurs every 22 years, with the most recent one occurring in 2004. If history is any guide, another one may be closer than any Californian would like.
The director of the Southern California earthquake center, Thomas Jordan, recently delivered a warning that should have sent chills down the spines of all Californians. The San Andreas Fault appears to be in a critical state, and a huge earthquake appears to be impending.
This isn’t the first time Californians have been warned about a potential threat. However, the southern portion of the fault “looks like it’s locked, loaded, and ready to go,” according to the warning. So, why is this renowned seismologist making such grim forecasts? In reality, there hasn’t been a large release of stresses in the San Andreas Fault System’s southern part since 1857. The San Andreas Fault system is one of several that generally mark the boundary between the Pacific and North American tectonic plates.
Both plates are advancing northward, but the Pacific Plate is moving faster than the North American Plate, indicating that forces between the plates are growing all the time.
Some of these stresses were tragically released in the San Francisco Bay area in 1906 in the form of a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, and again in Northern California in 1989 in the form of a 6.9 magnitude earthquake in Loma Prieta. Fortunately, no disasters of this scale have happened since then along the San Andreas Fault in the state’s south, although the 1994 Northridge event was linked to a nearby but distinct fault system. However, the lack of a quake raised the likelihood that one is on its way, and that, given the amount of stress that has accumulated, it will be the “Big One” when it hits.
