Scientists complete mission to map fast-moving fault off Alaska (and Canada)
Quote:
With a slip rate of more than 2 inches per year, this fault may be one of the fastest-moving strike-slip faults in the world. (For comparison, the San Andreas fault in central California slips about an inch to an inch-and-a-half each year.) Movement between the tectonic plates at the fault line has generated six earthquakes of magnitude 7 or greater within the last century. One of those earthquakes, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake near Lituya Bay, Alaska, in 1958 triggered a landslide that sent water 1,720 feet up an adjacent mountainside, one of the highest recorded runups of a tsunami — a rapidly rising turbulent surge of water often choked with debris.

Trump officials open door to fracking in California. Will fracking increase the number and severity of earthquakes in California?

Induced earthquakes (USGS): Seismicity can be induced at distances of 10 miles or more away from the injection point and at significantly greater depths than the injection point.

Makes me wonder to what extent Trump is advocating California fracking because they overwhelmingly voted against him by millions in 2016?

Both fracking and deep wastewater pumping have been associated with earthquakes in the Midwest.
