More than 40,000 young people study at Berkeley, oblivious to the potentially catastrophic tectonic rumblings beneath their feet.

But scientists at the United States Geological Survey say a huge area of unstable rock, known as the Hayward Fault runs directly below the University campus and it is overdue a catastrophic quake. They add it could happen any day now.

The death toll of a major quake hitting this part of California could run into tens of thousands –The Hayward Fault was responsible for the most powerful earthquake in American history – which struck 150 years ago on December 21,1868 with a magnitude 6.8 on the Richter scale.

Damage covered the entire Hayward Fault line, which runs from north of Berkeley down to San Jose along a 74 mile stretch.

The Hayward Fault is considered one of the most powerful fault lines in the world, running parallel to the potentially catastrophic San Andreas fault, and 150 years almost to the day, researchers warn it is overdue a quake.

In 1868, the population living along the Hayward Fault was just 24,000. Today there are upwards of 2.5 million residents.

And a warning from the US Geological Survey (USGS) states the damage could be devastating.

Water, electricity and gas supplies will be affected, and buildings – even so-called quake-proof buildings – could come tumbling down.
