    Your post is not Off Topic. A catastrophic earthquake in the Bay Area seems to me the only thing TSLAQ have left in their locker.

    It might be tail risk but these sorts of quakes should serve as a timely reminder to those that are 100% (or even >100%) invested in this single stock.

    It’s a major reason why Giga 3 and 4 can’t come soon enough. Too dependent on a single production location right now.

    It did. But that earthquake happened on the San Andreas fault. Tesla’s factory is just a mile or two from the Hayward fault, and not too far from where the Hayward fault comes near the Calaveras fault.

    Don't forget the silver creek fault.

    By the way my wife is a retired usgs geologist who worked in menlo park. We used to live in Fremont. And still own a house there. We not only lived in Santa Cruise when loma prieta struck but also were in Wellington NZ when the Nov 2016 eq hit there.

    Modern buildings built for eq country are amazing. In short don't panic.

    Both earthquakes happened at my last duty station in Ridgecrest, and also where I have my home. There hasn't been any reported fires that I can find, but I'll have to wait a while before my property managers will be able to sort through all the mess of the area. :(

    Could this be the most OT thread in Investor Forum history?

    My curiosity is how well the Boring Company test tunnels weathered these quakes? I would expect no impact particularly given the distance from the epicenters. Las Vegas will be interested in some info I would expect.

    I think the earthquake was from Kawhi Leonard choosing to sign with LA.

    Yes, I have read the FAQ. The quakes mentioned are from 25+ yrs ago. Once the media calms down in a couple weeks, it would be a good time for a statement from The Boring Co or an update to the FAQ. They probably have a good story to tell.

    Magnitude 3.5 earthquake on Calaveras fault. Epicenter about 25-30 miles from Tesla Fremont. They must have felt at least some small shaking.
