    The San Andreas is not Cascadia and it's going to cause mass casualties in Los Angeles, and probably not in San Francisco either (where the threat is undoubtedly higher).

    The last "war game" on the issue predicted that the "Big One" for Los Angeles might kill as many as 1,800 people and cause $200B in damage.  That's a Katrina number of deaths in a metro area with a population that is about 15 times as large.  I'll take those odds any day.
