8.6 Quake Possible in Southern California? Caltech Suggests New 'Mega-Earthquake'
San Andreas Capable of producing a 8.6 eq scientist are now speculating...

In recent years, scientists, first responders and utilities have been preparing for "The Big One," that inevitable quake that will rock Southern California to its core. It's coming. For sure. They just don't know when.

But the U.S. Geological Survey and Caltech have been on the ball, working from a likely scenario, a simulated "Shakeout" (see video after the jump) that would have a 7.8 quake hitting greater L.A. It would be deadly, destructive and put us in the dark for days, if not weeks.

Unfortunately, a 7.8 might now be too low of an estimate for The Big One:

I have a gut feeling a 8.0+ will hit here soon. Every single fucking night, in bed, I wonder when it will happen. I feel it coming very soon and it's not going to be pretty one bit

It will domino effect up to Oregon. If socal gets hit hard, norcal is going to get some of that too, and probably just as bad.

Near the fault... the Diablo Canyon Power Plant... which can only withstand a 7.0...

Thread: Southern California San Onofre Nuclear Plant "can withstand up to 7.0 quake and a 25-foot tsunami wall ", Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant

I posted some evidence of people in So. Cal. seeing earthquake lights, but the links got me banned. So I will just say this, over the last week people have been seeing the same lights they say before the 2008 China earthquake.

The MTJ has been where all the activity seems to be coming from and is what we need to keep an eye on capable of a 7+ magnitude from California to Oregon. Oregon earthquake increased in size from the one on 7-21-2012.

The Mendocino Triple Junction is a geologic triple junction where the San Andreas Fault meets the Mendocino Fault and the Cascadia subduction zone, separating three tectonic plates: the Pacific Plate, the North American Plate and the Gorda Plate. It is located just offshore of Cape Mendocino in northern California.[1]

Thermal Expansion happens especially during long periods of heating. Once cooling happens the plates condense back to their normal state.

July 24th, 2012 (CNN) -- In recent months, Americans have experienced numerous extreme weather-related events, including droughts, wildfires and heat waves.
We've witnessed the warmest spring since record-keeping began in 1895.
Thirty-one states reached record-high temperatures.
The period between July 2011 and June 2012 was the hottest 12 months on record.

Are you talking about the "earthquake cloud" a couple weeks ago? I saw a picture of it somewhere and it looked pretty small. Or have there been more since then?
