Southern California residents are gearing up for an earthquake in the likes of the recent devastating tremor in China. A new report released from the US Geological Survey and the California Geological Survey warns of the inevitability of a 7.8 magnitude quake along the San Andreas fault and the resulting deaths of thousands and $200 billion in damage.
The study has resulted in what is being called, â€œThe Great Southern California Shake-Outâ€, scheduled for November 12-16, 2008. The 'Shake-Out' will be the, â€œcountry's largest-ever earthquake preparedness exercise,â€ and will include, â€œthe largest earthquake drill in U.S. history.â€
The report says Southern Californians "have the opportunity to work together to write this ending . . . through the decisions they make -- or don't make -- to get ready for earthquakes."
