Puente fault
The Puente Hills Fault (also known as the Puente Hills thrust system) is an active geological fault that is located in the Los Angeles Basin in California. The thrust fault was discovered in 1999 and runs about 40 km (25 mi) in three discrete sections from the Puente Hills region in the southeast to just south of Griffith Park in the northwest. The fault is known as a blind thrust fault due to a lack of surface features normally associated with thrust faults. Large earthquakes on the fault are relatively infrequent but computer modeling has indicated that a major event could have substantial impact in the Los Angeles area. One moderate earthquake in 1987 and another light event took place in 2010, with the former causing considerable damage and deaths. The fault is now suspected of causing the 5.1 La Habra Earthquake as well.

Downtown’s Big Fault - Los Angeles Downtown News - For Everything Downtown L.A.!: News
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - The images of the destruction caused by the magnitude 9.0 earthquake that struck Japan on March 11 are particularly poignant to those who live in earthquake-prone areas. They strike a chord in Southern California in part because seismic experts have long been talking about the overdue “Big One” that would emanate from a rupture on the San Andreas Fault.
