On the big screen was a film-catastrophe "San Andreas Fault" with Dwayne Johnson in the title role. Given that the San Andreas Fault, which is located in California, actually considered to be one of the most dangerous in the world because of its impressive size.

San Andreas Fault woke up sowing panic among the residents of Los Angeles and San Francisco. Skyscrapers collapse, fires breaking out and roar under a crushing fall famous letters Hollywood. Then a powerful tSunami leaves a trace of the bridge Golden Gate. It is about this scenario tells the film "San Andreas Fault".

Coming back to real life, explained that the crack that inspires fear, stretches across California and is the cause of several powerful earthquakes in the history of the state. The film shows how near Hoover Dam in Nevada there is a previously unknown flaw, because that shook San Andreas. Then Southern California powerful jolts occur magnitude 9.1 points, followed by fluctuations in the magnitude of 9.6 points.

USGS seismologist SUSAn Hoag said that the disaster in San Andreas can really happen again.

"We live in the time when we will face a big earthquake," - she said.

Thus the San Andreas Fault is not able to trigger an earthquake of magnitude 9 points or more, since it is not long enough and not too deep. However, a crack in the San Andreas has already shown his amazing strength.

In 1906, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 has transformed parts of San Francisco in the fiery wreckage. About 50 years ago, almost as powerful tectonic surges were seen in the southern part of the fault. In 2008, the US Geological Survey gave a task team of 300 experts to write a detailed scenario of what would happen if an earthquake of 7.8 points hit the south of San Adreas.
