The earthquake of 1906 devastated San Franciso on April 18, and on its one-hundredth anniversary, the town has been remembering the devastation it caused. The Indonesian tsunami, caused by an earthquake deep beneath the ocean floor, arrived suddenly in December of 2004. Now it looks like both of them may happen again.
Larry O'Hanlon writes in Discovery News that mysterious rumblings have been detected inside and above the San Andreas fault. Seismologists aren?t sure if these are a warning that a major quake is on the way. The noises "just rumble and stop" then this sequence repeats, according to seismologist Robert Nadeau.
Ker Than writs in LiveScience.com that the Indian Ocean fault that caused the 2004 tsunami may be about to do have another quake?which would produce another giant wave. The cause of the tsunami was actually a submerged volcano, which has now sprouted a new cone 1,000 feet high. Despite this, the volcano is still about 2,300 feet below sea level, but it is inching slowly towards the surface of the ocean.
