"California is famous for its fault lines, yet there are no legends of earthquakes. I haven't yet come across a stand alone earthquake or volcano myth."
See the Native American-Indian "The Turtle Tale" which comes from the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe, a California Indian Tribe also known as the San Gabriel Band of Mission Indians.
or the Chilean myth of the two snakes: one snake dug holes in the earth to store water in, but the other snake filled them in with stones. This caused the reptiles to fight, which caused the ground to shake. (a "stand-alone earthquake myth")
