Full Description:
The ground we live on will shake violently and destructively during the next great earthquake in the Coachella Valley. It could happen any day.
We all need to be prepared, now! If you need to be convinced about preparedness, see this presentation.
See dramatic animations illustrating how faults have created the spectacular valley landscape and what you can expect when the southern San Andreas Fault strikes again.
