Is Southern California Ready For 7.8 Earthquake?

Is Southern California Ready For 7.8 Earthquake?
    BIGGEST SUPPORTER SAYS IT UNLESS
    HE SEES ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE HE
    IS STAYING WITH MOORE.
    RICK: THANKS DAVE.
    WHEN IT COMES TO THE BIG ONE
    EXPERTS AGREED IT'S NOT A MATTER
    OF IF IT'S A MATTER OF WHEN.
    A 7.8 EARTHQUAKE ON THE SAN
    ANDREAS WOULD ROCK SOUTHERN
    CALIFORNIA FOR HUNDREDS OF MILES
    AND THE DAMAGE COULD LAST MONTH
    OR EVEN YEARS.
    HURRICANES, FIRES, EARTHQUAKES.
    OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS WE HAVE
    AN ALL TOO REAL GLIMPSE OF WHAT
    MOTHER NATURE IS TRULY CAPABLE
    OF.
    AND JUST HOW QUICKLY A DISASTER
    CAN TURN MAJOR CITIES UPSIDE
    DOWN.
    SOMETHING THAT SHOULD SERVE AS A
    STAUNCH REMINDER SOUTHERN
    CALIFORNIA THAT WE COULD BE NEXT
    NEXT.
    WHEN YOU LIVE IN SOUTHERN
    CALIFORNIA YOU HAVE TO SAY WILL
    HAPPEN.
    EARTHQUAKE EXPERT DR. LACY LUCY
    JONES SAYS THERE ARE MORE THAN
    THREE AND A DEFAULT IN SOUTHERN
    CALIFORNIA AND WE ALL LIVE
    WITHIN FIVE MILES OF AT LEAST
    ONE OF THOSE FAULTS.
    WHILE ANY OF THESE FAULTS ARE
    CAPABLE OF JOLTING SOCAL IT'S NO
    SURPRISE TO THOSE OF US WHO LIVE
    HERE EXPERTS POINT TO THE SAN
    ANDREAS IS THE ONE MOST LIKE YOU
    TO PRODUCE A LARGE QUAKE.
    IT WILL BE FELT IN LAS VEGAS
    AND ARIZONA.
    IT MAY BE FELT IN THE BAY AREA.
    REPORTER: THE SAMARA PROJECTS
    THE SAN ANDREAS COULD YIELD OF
    7.8 MAGNITUDE QUAKE 11 TIMES
    STRONGER THAN THE 7.1 THAT HAD
    MEXICO CITY IN SEPTEMBER AND 44
    TIMES STRONGER THAN THE 1994
    NORTHRIDGE QUAKE.
    IF A 7.8 QUAKE RUPTURES THE SAN
    ANDREAS IT COULD HIT THE SALTON
    SEA AND RUN 186 MILES TO LAKE
    HUGHES SHAKING EVERYTHING IN ITS
    PATH AND POTENTIALLY SETTING OFF
    OTHER FAULTS CAUSING ADDITIONAL
    QUAKES.
    EVERYTHING AND ACROSS A
    DEFAULT WILL BE BROKEN, ROADS,
    RAILWAYS, GAS PUMP LINES, WATER
    SYSTEMS ELECTRICAL TRANSMISSION
    LINES.
    ALL OF THESE THINGS WILL BE
    OFFSET.
    REPORTER: THAT MEANS ROADS AND
    FREEWAYS FRACTURED, LANDSLIDES
    TRIGGERED, WATER
    SEWAGE COMIC INDICATION SEVERED.
    IT'S A SYSTEM OF SYSTEMS AND
    EVERY ONE OF THEM IS VULNERABLE.
    IT'S NOT ABOUT DYING, IT'S ABOUT
    BEING BANKRUPT AND LISTING YOUR
    HOME AND HAVING NO PLACE TO GO.
    REPORTER: THE NUMBER OF DEATHS
    AND DAMAGE TO THE REGION WOULD
    BE STAGGERING.
    THE SCENARIO SAYS MORE THAN 1800
    PEOPLE WOULD DIE.
    ENTIRE BUILDINGS AND HOMES
    ROUGHLY THREE AND A THOUSAND
    EITHER DESTROYED OR BADLY
    DAMAGED AND $213 BILLION IN
    DAMAGES.
    WE ALWAYS PLAN FOR THE
    WORST-CASE SCENARIO.
    REPORTER: CHRIS AT THE LOS
    ANGELES MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT
    SAYS IT COULD TAKE UP TO 18
    MONTHS TO FULLY REPAIR OUR WATER
    SYSTEM AND ELECTRICAL GRID BUT
    THAT ISN'T OUR BIGGEST CONCERN.
    WHAT IS GOING TO BE PRIOR TO?
    IF THAT SCENARIO HITS WE ARE
    LOOKING AT ABOUT 1600 FIRES
    APPROXIMATELY IGNITING.
    REPORTER: IN THE 1906 SAN
    FRANCISCO EARTHQUAKE 90% OF THE
    DAMAGE WAS CAUSED BY FIRE.
    IN 2011 JAPAN'S QUAKE CAUSED
    ANOTHER ISSUE, AS TSUNAMI.
    IS THAT SOMETHING WE NEED TO
    WORRY ABOUT?
    THE FALL TEST TO BE
    UNDERWATER AND IT HAS TO CHANGE
    THE SHAPE OF THE SEA SO SOUTHERN
    CALIFORNIA DOES NOT HAVE AN
    OFFSHORE FAULT.
    REPORTER: THE EXPERTS STRESS WE
    MIGHT NOT KNOW WHEN OR EXACTLY
    WHERE BUT WE KNOW A BIG QUAKE IS
    COMING.
    NOW IT'S UP TO YOU TO BE
    PREPARED.
    WE WANT PEOPLE TO DO
    SOMETHING TO BE BETTER PREPARED
    FOR TOMORROW.
    THE EARTHQUAKE IS INEVITABLE
    BUT THE DISASTER IS NOT AND WE
    CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY THE
    CHOICES WE MAKE THAT WILL MAKE
    IT A LOT LESS DAMAGING.
