Scientists See Mega-Quake Danger Rising On San Andreas Fault

California earthquake experts believe what happens at the San Gorgonio Pass during a major rupture of the San Andreas fault could have wide-ranging implications for the region and beyond. They worry a huge quake could sever lifelines at the pass for weeks or months, cutting Southern California off from major highway and rail routes as well as sources of power, oil and gas. Southern California’s cities are surrounded by mountains, making access through narrow passes like the San Gorgonio essential. Experts have also expressed grave concerns about the Cajon Pass, where Interstate 15 and key electric and fuel lines run.
