Coastal Commission Study Evaluates Earthquake and Tsunami Potential in California
- "The vast majority of faults in California, including the San Andreas fault, could not produce a magnitude 9 earthquake." "The Cascadia Subduction Zone could produce a magnitude 9 earthquake similar to the Tōhoku Earthquake." "A nuclear emergency such as is occurring in Japan is extremely unlikely at the state’s two operating nuclear power plants." - conclusions from this report by Mark Johnsson of the California Coastal Commission.
