If you live in California then you’ve heard the saying quake country. We’ve all experienced a major quake in our life time. I remember the one quake that scared the life out of me.
It was January 17, 1994 the time was 4:30 on Martin Luther King Jr day, no school or work that day, saved thousands of lives in my opinion. Just imagine all those people that would have been on the freeways that collapsed! I didn’t sleep for days because I was scared that there would be another earthquake but stronger.
According to seismologist Tom Rockwell “A powerful quake in the mid-to-upper 6s could cause liquefaction around San Diego and Mission bays and locally in Mission Valley, and cause the land to be offset across the fault, which would damage buildings.” The Rose Canyon fault stretches almost 40 miles, from San Diego bay in the south before veering offshore near La Jolla and reaching as far north as Oceanside.
