We’ve seen enough disaster movies over the past few years to last a lifetime. And as we saw recently in the earthquake in Haiti, the results of earthquakes can be devastating. The San Andreas fault in Southern California has been mentioned or shown in a few different movies as the source of a large earthquake. Most recently in the movie 2010, we saw a large portion of Southern California fall into the sea.

This is a video that depicts the realistic outcome of a hypothetical, but plausible, magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the San Andreas fault in Southern California. The film was created by the USGS (United States Geological Service) Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project in cooperation with the Designmatters program at Art Center to depict the physical, social, and economic consequences of the most comprehensive earthquake scenario ever created.
