New Ominous Earthquake Warning for Bay Area
Everyone knows about the famous San Andreas fault line spanning across California and the potential danger it poses, but according to geologists, northern Californians have another troublesome fault to worry about. According to a report from the United States Geological Survey, scientists believe that the largest immediate threat of an earthquake lies in the Hayward Fault, due to the highly populated areas of Oakland and Berkeley being located directly above it. Scientists believe a major earthquake from this fault would result in catastrophic damage and the loss of hundreds of lives. On top of that, major faults usually produce earthquakes every 150 years or so, and the last one from this fault line came exactly 150 years ago, leading geologists to believe that this fault could be due for a major quake.
