The state of California and the Nevada state of Nevada are in the midst of a geological event that is threatening to send the earth sliding toward the edge of the Pacific.
It is the largest plate boundary collision in recorded history, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The event occurred about 2,600 miles (3,200 kilometers) north of San Francisco on Sept. 3, the official agency said Monday.
The fault that triggered the collision was located about 1,800 miles (2,500 kilometers) south of Santa Barbara, according the U,S.
Bureau of Land Management.
It also involved a series of smaller plate boundaries, including one in northern Nevada.
The collision triggered the largest seismic activity on record, with ground shaking and the formation of small, high-pressure systems that can cause earthquakes.
The magnitude 5.8 quake struck at 7:55 a.m. local time in the northern California city of Bakersfield.
The quake was felt throughout the state and triggered several aftershocks that shook buildings, damaged vehicles and caused power outages.
It triggered a massive aftershock that struck the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California, but did not cause any deaths.
“There was no immediate threat to public safety,” the Bureau of Geosciences said in a statement.
The U.N. and other experts have linked the collision to the onset of a massive earthquake along the Pacific Plate.
The plate was originally formed about 10,000 years ago, but the two sides have shifted more recently.
In the past few years, the plate has been pushed south by an earthquake called a K-tectonics event, or K-T.
The last major K-event occurred about 1.6 billion years ago.
Scientists are still trying to determine whether or not this latest event has anything to do with the current one.
“The probability that there is an interaction with K-events is very high,” said Mark K. Thompson, an earth scientist at Columbia University who has studied the K-series.
The impact of the K events has been relatively quiet.
K-triggered earthquakes have caused many smaller plate boundary collisions, but have been relatively rare.
But now the California and New Mexico plates are at the same level.
The two states have about a 1 percent chance of colliding in the next five to 10 years, according a 2016 analysis by the California Geological Survey and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The K-Triggered Earthquake Activity map shows the likelihood of a K event in the near-future based on the likelihood the event will be triggered by an impact on Earth.
The map shows where the Earth’s K-cycles are.
K events have a 10 percent chance for a collision in the coming five to 15 years, and a 5 percent chance in the following five to seven years.
If there are more K events than K-trials, there will be a 2 percent chance that they will trigger a large earthquake.
If the probability of K events is high, it could cause more damage than normal, and it could create landslides.
In other words, it’s not a “one in a billion” scenario, said Thomas C. Gagnon, a geophysicist at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
But there’s still plenty of time for the next K event to happen.
“If we don’t see the next event, I think we’ll be fine,” Thompson said.
“We’re going to have a couple more years to sort of figure it out.”
Thompson said he would be surprised if the next major K event wasn’t a K events.
“It would be a surprise if it wasn’t,” he said.
