    Neat – a couple things to note though. The 8.25 Earthquake in LA on January 9th, 1857 is missing. The “scientific estimates” never change. I remember the same 60-70% over the next 30 years back in 1989 and 1994. Of course the longer we go without a big one, the bigger it’s going to be once it hits here. Also, Japan vs CA. Japan has three times the population, but CA has roughly 30 million people living in two major metro areas – LA/SD and SF/Sacramento. With our lack of spending on infrastructure, i’d say the different in population would be a wash in a big quake.
