Suffer a golden state the fate of Atlantis?

Pacific Coast of North America — one of the most active seismic zones of the world. Here there are two large lithospheric plates — the Pacific and the North American, the boundaries of which are breaks the crust. San Andreas Fault — one of the boundaries between the two plates. It stretches for 1,300 km from southwest to northeast, diagonally across California. Its average depth is 16 km. For the last 3 million years, the average rate of plates along the fault was 5.6 cm per year. About as fast growing nails in humans.

The Pacific plate is moving
