According to the 53 pages study, researchers used two methods to reach these conclusions about the possibility of a big natural disaster in California.
Scientists uncovered a newly identified fault line that could unleash a magnitude-7.4 quake in the region, which other researchers say is already long overdue for a whopper of a temblor along the infamous San Andreas fault.
While the likelihood of a full rupture sits at 30-40%, lead author Valerie Sahakian, who is now a postdoctoral fellow at the USGS in Menlo Park, says that a smaller natural disaster in the magnitude 5 or 6 range could still have a significant impact on the region.
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography has re-characterized the Newport-Inglewood and Rose Canyon faults, saying that they represent a single system that could produce a magnitude 7.3 quake if their offshore segments ruptured.
This allowed them to generate a "nested survey" of the region, accounting for different resolution scales and depth penetration.
The work revealed that four segments of the strike-slip fault are broken up by "stepovers" - or, points where the fault is horizontally offset.
Patriots Acquire Tight End Dwayne Allen From Colts
Indianapolis may have moved on from Allen with Doyle's ascension, but the Patriots clearly have a use for him up in Foxborough. Though, he has been an excellent presence in the red zone, as 15 percent of his receptions have gone for touchdowns.

Brent crude futures were down 34 cents at $55.56 a barrel by 1036 GMT after settling 1.5 percent higher in the previous session. Global oil production capacity is expected to grow by 5.6 million bpd by 2022.
The earthquakes examined by the authors of the study were most often around 7.5, a magnitude significantly less devastating than 7.9, but scientists say that's still powerful enough to cause tremendous disruptionacross Southern California. Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey released the results of the years-long study warning a major quake could strike soon. The new research shows that M=7.3+ earthquakes are possible along this fault zone.
"The record shows that large earthquakes occurred near Tejon Pass on average every 100 years".
As if the San Andreas fault wasn't worrying enough already, California has another big potential quake problem to be concerned about. The study also found evidence that, along the onshore segment of the system, three to five ruptures had happened in the last 11,000 years on the northern end, whereas one quake occurred roughly 400 years ago on the southern end.
The fault system hosted a 6.4-magnitude natural disaster near Long Beach, California in 1933. And, in their report, the scientists noted the fault "poses a significant hazard to coastal Southern California" because it is so close to some of the most densly populated parts of the state. It's not the big one.
"There's certainly going to be several minutes of ground shaking in the L.A. basin for a large-magnitude rupture like a 7.5 or greater", Scharer said.
Several European cities feature women guides, crossings in New Zealand show a women's voting rights campaigner. But not all people approved of the change, which is a 12-month trial backed by the local roads authority.
WHAM says this incident comes less than one week after 16 headstones were damaged in a Jewish cemetery in Rochester . He said the latest incidents were the sixth wave this year, amounting to 140 bomb threats; each seemed different.

Women in more than 50 countries - including Bosnia, Senegal, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Pakistan - also hosted similar events. Perez continued, calling for the feminist movement to work toward building a more inclusive environment for trans women.
According to ESPN , Brady and Purple Carrot are branding the ready-to-cook meals " Eat like a goat " in a catchy bit of wordplay. Then again, it'd probably be $400/week for six meals that serve 8-10 people.

A new satellite can capture lightning strikes from space, giving forecasters a better picture of what's happening during a storm. In addition, the GLM can detect in-cloud lightning, which occurs five to ten minutes before lightning strikes the ground.
Last season, McManus converted 85.3 percent of his field-goal attempts and 97.0 percent of his extra-point attempts. According to Pro Football Focus, Davis never missed a tackle last season as he led the Denver defense with 96 stops.
We have all been wondering what it would really take for the New England Patriots to trade back up quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Belichick and the Patriots will continue to work the suitors for Garoppolo under the guise that they're happy to keep him.
