ALSO there is a "Murrita Hot Springs" Fault Line that branches off the Elsinore Fault Line at about 40 degrees.

OK people, we had a slight rumble. If you look at the Southern CA earthquake map we have several a day, that aren't felt because we don't have our ears to the ground. Is this the Apocalypse, NO. Do we live in an area where it could come one day YES. Thats the price for living in the greatest place weather wide in the world. Look outside, enjoy life today its simply a beautiful day. Be prepared but, don't panic when the odds are you will never live to see that Apocalyptic earthquake. Enjoy your day now. Don, you little fear monger-er you.

Don there are areas like this in Lake Elsinore's Alberhill ranch and off Temescal Canyon Road. "The potential for local liquefaction is moderately high and should be considered a primary seismic hazard" Also there is a fault right at the Pacific Aggregates site in North Lake Elsinore, which was never mentioned when many people purchased their homes in Alberhill Ranch.
