San Diego Eathquake: Watch our 30 second “An Earthquake Could Happen Today” San Diego commercial.

Like all of California, San Diego is earthquake country. Many of the mountains, and some of the valleys, in Southern California were formed by the San Andreas fault system—the tectonic boundary between the Pacific and North American tectonic plates—which runs to the east of San Diego County from the Gulf of California up through the Salton Sea and into the Los Angeles region. It is the longest fault in California and can cause powerful earthquakes—as big as magnitude 8—that can still generate strong shaking levels in San Diego. 

The Rose Canyon fault runs along the coast and beneath downtown San Diego. Geologists say this is the biggest earthquake threat to San Diego, capable of earthquakes of magnitude 6.5 to 6.8.
