I just know we are due for a big one soon. It may be Alaska, California or somewhere in the south! Yep, they just found a fault line in the south they say could produce a 7+ and there is no way the people in that area are prepared for such a massive quake. It is time for more ground sensors such as those produced and used by Quakefinder (www.quakefinder.com) to be installed in quake zones so we can seriously get down to the business of finding precursors to the major quakes. We can't save the buildings but we could save the people and animals.

Thanks for your interesting

Thanks for your interesting comment.

I'm also concerned by a Big One occuring within a few years. When and where? That's the question.

Where is located the fault line?
