About this map: 

Deep beneath California, the Pacific and North American Plates relentlessly grind past one another, straining or "loading" faults in the Earth's rigid crust above. The horizontal ("strike-slip") movement between these plates along the San Andreas Fault Zone is about 1.7 inches per year (40 mm/year), about as fast as your fingernails grow. At this rate, Los Angeles will be west of San Francisco in about 12 million years.
