Zechariah 14:4 and the Mount of Olives Fault Line

The torah gives a prophecy about the Mount of Olives that will occur as the messianic age is heralded in. Zechariah 14:4 states:

“And on that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem from the east. And the Mount of Olives shall split in the midst thereof-toward the east and toward the west-a very great valley. And half the mountain shall move to the north, and half of it to the south.”


This is a map of fault lines on the Mount of Olives. Notice the fault line going East to West right across the mountain. Is the bible predicting that a large-scale earthquake will split the Mount of Olives in half?
