Los Angeles: State geologists have released two new maps of earthquake faults in Los Angeles County, one of which could jeopardize a major Hollywood development project in the works. The California Geological Survey maps of the Hollywood and Sierra Madre faults are the first detailed looks at potential earthquake activity in the two areas, both of which are thought to have been dormant for some 7,000 years.
