Major California Faults Ready to Rupture

According to a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), some branches within the San Andreas Fault System are locked, meaning that major earthquakes could be coming soon. This could affect millions living in the San Francisco Bay Area, as some of the fault lines are located underneath the heart of the area’s infrastructure. The research was led by James Lienkaemper and the results were published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America.
