Evidence of an earthquake fault cutting a 25-mile swath through south Orange County should not be a cause for alarm, scientists said Thursday. While such a fault could produce powerful quakes, it's believed to be much less active than other faults in the region. "To put it in perspective," said Egill Hauksson, a seismologist with Caltech, "this is an interesting scientific thing, but I don't think it has any big implications for people living in the area."
