The site of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is 300 years overdue for a massive earthquake, experts say.
The Coachella Valley, which lies between the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults, could face a magnitude 7.8 quake that could last more than 100 seconds, kill thousands, destroy homes, collapse the I-10 and I-15 freeways, ignite petroleum pipelines and leave thousands homeless, according to US seismologist Lucy Jones.
"There will be several thousand dead and billions of dollars in damage," Jones said. She also indicated that the quake could topple buildings as far away as Los Angeles, which lies 150 miles west, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Fuck it, I'm still going again.....
