A huge fault in the Earth’s crust near Los Angeles is leaking helium, researchers have found.
They say the unexpected find sheds new light on the Newport-Inglewood Fault Zone in the Los Angeles Basin.
It reveals the fault is far deeper than previously thought, and a quake would be far more devastating.
It follows a report from the U.S. Geological Survey has warned the risk of ‘the big one’ hitting California has increased dramatically.

And, humans are very fragile creatures as individuals.
Water, bean, band aids, bullets, and bullion!
Give how the “We, The Sheeple” ignore everything except for celebrity gossip, sports results, and who’s dirty pictures are on the inet, this will be a real smack in the face.
