The 8 Most Likely Ways Utah Will Be Wiped Off the Map
Did you see the movie “San Andreas” this summer? I’m ashamed to admit that I paid money to see it (that’s nine bucks and 2.5 hours I’ll never get back). As I sat in the theater, looking around at my fellow Utahns who had also just wasted their money, I wondered if any of them were thinking the same thing I was: This movie is stupid…but hey, don’t we have a great, big, humongous fault line here in Utah??? Well, we do. And, as you’ll see below, someday Utah will likely have a big earthquake. But that’s just one of the ways in which our state’s residents could find themselves wishing that The Rock (aka Dwayne Johnson) will show up with a helicopter, RV or speedboat to save us.
