Why Californians are Moving to Phoenix

Californians Predicted To Move To Phoenix After Double Earthquakes Shock The State

With two powerful earthquakes shocking California in early July, residents are living in fear of “The Big One”.

First to come on July 4th was a quake measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale. This was the biggest in southern California for 20 years. Then came an even bigger shock of magnitude 7.1 the day after.

It’s no surprise that Californians are turning their thoughts to when “The Big One” will strike. This is an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude expected somewhere along the San Andreas Fault, which cuts across California.

No one knows when it’s likely to hit, but when it does loss of life and widespread damage are predicted.

Residents of southern California are relocating well away from the danger zone to avoid any chance of being caught up in The Big One.
