(FOX NEWS) – The southern part of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” according to Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center.

Jordan issued the warning during a keynote speech at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach, Calif. Wednesday, reports Fox 11.

“The pressure has been building on that part of the fault without being relieved for more than a hundred years,” he said.

Parts toward the southeast of the San Andreas fault haven’t moved since about 1680, according to the report.

“The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight,” Jordan said.
