Follow The Fault!

I noticed quite a few 3.0+ earthquakes in California today:

MAP 3.2 2008/11/29 13:01:06 36.880 -121.616 6.6 2 km ( 1 mi) ESE of Aromas, CA
MAP 3.2 2008/11/29 12:59:27 36.880 -121.617 6.4 2 km ( 1 mi) ESE of Aromas, CA
MAP 3.3 2008/11/29 11:04:50 35.742 -118.009 2.6 20 km ( 12 mi) ENE of Onyx, CA
MAP 3.0 2008/11/29 10:53:23 32.453 -115.303 13.2 26 km ( 16 mi) NW of Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico
MAP 3.0 2008/11/29 06:40:55 36.884 -121.619 6.6 2 km ( 1 mi) E of Aromas, CA

I’ve thought for some time that California would split apart and water would rush it to fill the Salton Sea. When you look at the map at the top, you realize just how small the distance is from the Gulf of Mexico to the whole Sacramento valley. It just follows the fault.
