What's Kansas doing there?
That's quite a few biggish ones though. :-
+Elizabeth Hahn Kansas has been experiencing increasing numbers of earthquakes, potentially as a result of wastewater disposal from fracking. So much so that the government of the state has mandated a reduction in wastewaster disposal rates:
Yep….. Works out great for me.. Just inland enough when San Francisco falls I to the sea I am beach front… And if Kansas cracks off it will be this island USA
+Eric Lortie yeah I know. 🙁 And not just Kansas.
Hello San Francisco will never fall into the ocean it is on a transform fault and it is heading south on the left side of the San Andreas while Los Angeles heads north on the same fault line. I was in the 1989 San Francisco earthquake, but after taking my natural disasters class in San Diego State I came out of the ignorance I used to live in thinking that California was somehow going to fall into the ocean, when in all actuality that could never happen. Although pieces of it do fall into route 1 occasionally rolling down the cliffs into the ocean. I have to chuckle when I hear people thinking that California is going to fall into the ocean because that's when I know they are landlocked or Flatlanders. Granted these two cities will not pass each other for a few million years
I would rather it fall into the ocean than have LA any closer to me..
I wish just Chavez Ravine would move up here.
Although I am more likely to get Jae beach front due to global warming.
