Statewide quake in California may be possible after all

Using a combination of laboratory measurements and computer simulations, the two scientists showed how so-called creeping segments in a fault long thought to be benign because they slip slowly and steadily along as tectonic plates shift might behave like locked segments, which build up stress over time and then rupture.

Such a snap caused the 9.0-magnitude Tohoku-Oki earthquake that hit Japan in 2011, triggering a tsunami, killing nearly 16,000 people and destroying the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Forecasters had not believed such a large quake was possible there.

A supposedly stable section of fault also ruptured during the 1999 Chi-Chi quake in Taiwan, a 7.6-magnitude temblor that killed more than 2,400 people.
