A fault in the East Bay [Oakland, CA] more dangerous than San Andreas

23 05 2018

Natural NewsA fault in the East Bay deemed more dangerous than San Andreas; geologists call it a “tectonic time bomb”

“The new report by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) warned that a theoretical magnitude 7 earthquake at the center of the fault – which is right beneath Oakland – will immediately result in at least 800 fatalities and 18,000 injuries.

Subsequent conflagrations along the fault line would add to the destruction, death, and injuries, warned USGS researcher Ken Hudnut. Hundreds of fires would destroy to 52,000 single-family homes, and they would be difficult to fight because the earthquake would have also destroyed the underground water pipes.”
