Southern California is due for a major earthquake, according to leading scientist Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center.
However the San Andreas Fault has not seen any major movement since 1812. This is long overdue for movement according to Thomas.
“The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight,” stated Thomas.
This fault line cuts through a few high profile areas and with such an imminent threat, these areas need to be highlighted. One of these areas is the near the army base Twenty-Nine Palms.
The areas that would be hit the hardest would be Coachella Valley, Inland Empire, and Antelope Valley.

Pill poppin’ Prince
The Prince estate has been battling allegations that drug abuse contributed to the late singer’s death.
An outside source reported that Percocet were found in the singer’s body, following his death on April 21. As of now, Carver County Police denied the allegations and stated, “results are pending.”
