Massive hidden fault could cause a cataclysmic earthquake, scientists warn

Predicting the date and time of an earthquake is nearly impossible, but seismologists can use trends in tectonic activity to suggest where a big tremor might occur. A recent study revealed a massive, hidden fault line running under miles of river sediment. Scientists suggest the fault, which runs beneath Bangladesh, parts of east India and Myanmar, could cause a magnitude 8.2 to 9.0 earthquake. A quake of that strength would be devastating in such a densely populated region. http://vimeo.com/26131107 The...
