Research turns up more amazing speculations all the time: New studies reveal that major quakes shake Southern California about every 88 years, which is THREE times as often than seismologists previously thought they did. This means that the area is OVERDUE for a massive quake along the San Andreas fault.
For years, scientists thought that major earthquakes occurred every 250 to 450 years along this fault line. In the August 21st edition of the Los Angeles Times, Rong-Gong Lin II quotes earthquake expert Lisa Grant as saying, “The next earthquake could be sooner than later. It was thought that we weren’t at risk of having another large one any time soon. Well, now, it might be ready to rupture.”
