Earthquakes in California discovered more than 15 miles deep, heightening seismic worries

Scientists in California have found that earthquakes can occur much deeper below the Earth’s surface than originally believed, a discovery that alters their understanding of seismic behavior and potential risks. Seismologists have long believed that earthquakes occur less than 12 to 15 miles underground....
