Catalina Island & So Cal Tsunami Threat
.


" With a strong enough jolt - a 7.6 -magnitude earthquake -
the seafloor under Catalina Island could be violently thrust
upward, causing a tsunami along the Southern California coast,
according to researchers at the University of Southern California."

" Sizable earthquake strikes off Pacific coast near Catalina Island "


"... 163 miles south-southwest of Avalon in an area of
shallow faulting where “the Pacific (tectonic) plate
moves to the northwest with respect to the North America
plate …” according to a USGS statement.

A 7.6 ist roughly 60 times more powerful than a 6.4 like it happened today. That's quite a difference, heh?

" Catalina Island itself exists due to earthquake-related uplift
on a geologic structure known as a restraining bend,"


" "Bends in the fault trace produce regions where earthquake stresses
cause the sea floor to pop up and generate a tsunami. "
