Today in Fear

Apparently "earthquake storms" are a thing and when one fault ruptures a bunch more faults might follow suit, and there's history of it happening in Hollywood a few times over the past 10,000 years. But the Hollywood faults have been in a lull for awhile, so we seem to be okay for the foreseeable future. BUT seismologists say that the most dangerous fault line is the southern end of the San Andreas Fault which has a 59% chance of rupturing in the next 30 years. In unrelated news, a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey says Californians need to get earthquake insurance post haste, because only 10% of Californians have earthquake insurance. In other unrelated news, look at Pickles the giant cat, nicknamed Catasaurus Rex. He's so fat! [Salon/cbsLA/news.com.au]
