The Most Dangerous Fault Zones in America

There are many seismically active fault zones across the United States just as there are all over the world. Many have yet to even be discovered, and many are too small or too irrelevant to worry about. But there are some that have the potential to do more than crack some dishes and knock grandma's picture off the wall. Most importantly, these are the faults that are known to have caused terrible damage in the past either in human recorded history or the geologic record.  

The list won't exhaustively cover ALL the fault zones in the US, just the ones have the potential to cause catastrophic damage.
