Default Is Las Vegas affected by Calif earthquakes?

If the Big One hits California, will Las Vegas (or Phoenix?) be affected? Are there any fault lines running below Nevada or other states bordering California?

I would never live in California because of the earthquakes and the high cost of living and now the threat of fires. If you live in California, anyday the ground can start shaking and you might lose everything. California is also overrun with gangs and illegal aliens.

LA it is for me... it more of the lesser of two evils but LA wins besides the beach is so close and much more of a variety in the city

There are many fault lines under Nevada as a whole, Las Vegas in particular, though, I don't think is that dangerous of a location. Phoenix probably has even less to worry about. BTW, have you ever considered moving to Sacramento, CA? I've heard the seismic activity risk there is very low compared to the coast, it's a lot more affordable than the coastal cities, has a totally different political climate, and is a lot more low-key.

Los Angeles by a mile. A really, really looooooong mile.

Better weather, better culture, better vibe.

Where is the "Id rather gouge my eyeballs out with dull wooden spoons before I moved to either of those cities" option?

If I was forced to move to one of those "cities" kicking and screaming, Id choose L.A. anyday.

There's always the option of not participating in the thread...

Though my experience with Las Vegas is very limited, I would pick LA due to the fact that it is coastal.

Can I gouge out your eyes with dull wooden spoons until you're kicking and screaming?
