Researchers find major quakes on the southern section, on average, every 88 years – three times as often previously evidence yet that we’re due for a massive quake.
The study, produced after several years of field studies in the Carrizo Plain area about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles, found that earthquakes along the San Andreas fault have occurred far more often than previously believed. source
San Andreas Fault – Earthquake Risk?
Jim Berkland points out at least four risk factors
1. The moon will be not only full, but at perigee. In fact this will be the closest perigee that the moon will have for the next five years. Experts have recently had to accept the role of tidal forces in the triggering of earthquakes.
2. The next day will be the vernal equinox, which produces the equinoctial tides, another stressor on account of the earth’s axial inclination.
3. The California coast has recently seen a massive and unexplained fish kill. Such fish kills, and aberrant behavior of pets and livestock, have been remarkably accurate earthquake predictors (though not of 100 percent predictive value).
An estimated 1 million fish turned up dead on in a Southern California marina
4. Finally, the Ring of Fire has already seen four other earthquakes either along the ring or along a trench connected to it in the past year, in Haiti, Chile, New Zealand, and finally the Sendai event. In the belief that such events follow a pattern, Berkland believes that the San Andreas Fault might be due.
Walt Brown at the Center for Scientific Creationism accepts most of Berkland’s arguments as sound, with this key difference: he would not limit the earthquake risk to the San Andreas Fault or even to the entire Ring of Fire…

‘VU’ ( March 20, 2011 )
‘Having resided in the Bay Area for the last sixteen years, I completely understand what Berkland is talking about. On my commute I drive by Ocean Beach everyday and I have noticed the tides being significantly higher and rougher throughout the day. For all of today, it was stormy. Over the past few days and all of next week it will rain. About a million fish washed-up on the shore of Redondo Beach and whales have been sighted in San Diego indicating that animals have lost their navigational sense due to changes in the magnetic field. If a quake strikes, I think it will be on the San Andreas and my god it is going to be massive. This quake is long overdue and looking at the occurrences across the world it makes sense for one to occur now. Please be prepared for an earthquake, it may not strike within the next week but it will strike someday and that day you will be ready’.
