Because I needed to know...

It's fun working for the county. We get answers to all kinds of things that people ask.

Check this out:

6) Is it true that California is going to fall into the Pacific Ocean?

No. The portion of California west of the San Andreas Fault is firmly attached to the Pacific Plate and the portion east is firmly attached to the North American Plate. San Diego is moving north towards Los Angeles at the rate of about 2 inches per year and is in no danger of falling into the ocean. The Los Angeles City Hall is 10 feet closer to San Francisco than when it was built in 1924. In about 500,000 years San Diego could be an island off the coast of San Francisco.

***You know you wanted to know but were afraid to ask.
