While I'm not a geologist as anything more than a hobby, the string of earthquakes along the western coasts of the Americas has me concerned that a much much larger one is on the way.<br><br>Anyone out that way overly concerned?<br><br>

I was thinking the same thing when I saw they had a large ones at the 2 extreme ends of the fault and several minor one in between. As Steely Dan sang California tumbles into the sea...<br>If the animals start heading out of town go with them.<br><br>
My theory is that the Universe has already planned it's 'last laugh' California earthquake scenario. I figure that since there are also fault lines that run along the eastern seaboard of the US, what will happen is that just as that massive San Andreas Fault reaches the point where one would expect California to plummet into the Pacific...a bizarre tectonic anomaly will occur and instead a good portion of the right coast will slide into the sea. The end.<br><br>(Hopefully I won't be home at the time...)<br><br>
The fascinating thing is that only a 100 years ago Wegener was considered a looney for even suggesting hat the continents might move over the crust of the earth.<br><br>[color:red]Bibo, ergo sum</font color=red>
