The San Andreas is one of the most famous faults in California. No doubt because it has had epic earthquake disaster movies made about it while gaining the reputation as one of the most dangerous faults in the world.
But experts are saying that the reputation is well-deserved. Since they say the fault is the largest in California running almost the entire length of the state, and they say it is overdue for a major earthquake.
The San Andreas goes the length of California from close to the Mexican border all the way up to San Francisco. The fault is so long it’s divided into 3 major segments.
With the northern segment near San Francisco, which last had a major earthquake in 1906 that shook San Francisco and then burned it.
And the central segment is near Monterey, which they say that segment last had a major earthquake in 1857. Then the southern segment is near Los Angeles, which that segment is said to have last had a major earthquake in 1690.
It may be impossible to predict exactly when the next earthquake may occur on the San Andreas, but scientists say they can pin down what they call a recurrence interval.
Which they say is the average time span between earthquake occurrences for a specific fault line.
And the experts say that the cycle time for ruptures with major earthquakes on the San Andreas fault is on average approximately 130 to 150 years.
So the overwhelming majority of the fault’s length in California is significantly overdue for a “big one.”
According to experts the San Andreas fault is capable of unleashing an earthquake at/over magnitude 8.0. And the majority of California’s population lives in the vicinity of the San Andreas Fault.
Where cities, towns, housing and roads, have actually been built right on the fault. For example, a tunnel of the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit System is bored right through the fault zone. A great quake on the San Andreas cannot help but be severely devastating.
It seems that the San Andreas is ready to make the move from a disaster movie to a devastating reality show.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that there will be earthquakes as a sign of the Last Days indicating the nearing end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
