San Andreas Fault due for earthquake

April 20, 2010

In a news report by Ted Rowland from CNN, seismologists believe that the San Andreas Fault is a prime candidate to produce a large earthquake in California.

There have been 80 earthquakes in California and Baja, Mexico in 2010 over a 4.0 magnitude, which is double the number of earthquakes in all of 2009, according to the report.

According to scientists, all but just a few of those were aftershocks, which evens it out to a fairly normal rate.
