The City of Long Beach
Long Beach is a popular location for numerous films and TV shows. For the 1923 classic The Ten Commandments, Seal Beach on the south east of Long Beach served as the ‘Red Sea which Moses parted’. Long Beach high schools, while popular for their famous alumni and high standards of education, have played a starring ‘role’ in movies like Coach Carter and American Pie. The currently popular high school drama Glee is set in the city’s Juan Rodriguez Calibro High School. The city is also the location for the popular crime drama CSI Miami.

As per the USGS database the probability of another earthquake of similar magnitude occurring in the not so distant future is 28%, but the damages to properly will be more because this will occur at a closer range — within 31 miles (and not 100 miles). And like most other cities in this area, there is a greater than 90% chance of 5.1 or higher magnitude earthquake.
