A new study shows an earthquake could strike at any time in California

As steam kettle with the top of the pressure building under the surface of California that could unleash a monster earthquake at any time. This is according to a new study from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Geologists say Southern California, it's time for a giant earthquake, which could lead to the spread of damage. It all comes down to the Salton Sea, which lies to the east of San Diego. Salton Sea lies directly on the San Andreas Fault and covers more than 350 square miles. Large earthquake reached the bottom of the lake about once every 180 years. But when officials began to heat the Colorado River to reduce flooding in the downstream (including the Sea Salton), moderate earthquakes stopped at Salton. Sounds like a good thing, right? Not necessarily. Seismologists believe that the glass is stopped moderate stress-releasing earthquakes in the Salton. Now, they are afraid of the pressure building and the area can be as much as 100 years, the time limit for the mega-quake, quake measuring 7.5 or higher. This disturbing news comes as a new poll out that details Californians fears about earthquakes and other natural disasters. —The Weather Channel
