Earthquakes in California are common. California is one of the most seismically active regions in the world. More than 300 faults crisscross the state, which sits atop two of Earth’s major tectonic plates, the Pacific and North American plates. About 10,000 quakes each year rattle Southern California alone, although most of them are too small to be felt.
California faces an almost certain risk of being rocked by a strong earthquake by 2037.
Scientists still cannot predict exactly where in the state such a quake will occur or when. But the analysis should be a wake-up call for residents to prepare for a natural disaster in earthquake country. *
