State warns of an elevated quake risk

Most of Southern California is on alert for earthquakes that could arrive in the next few days, the Governor's Office of Emergency Services announced Tuesday. If you're not from California, the Big One is the legendary quake that will once and for all break the state off from the rest of the continent and float it off into the Pacific Ocean like one massive island.

This advisory is equal to a 1-percent increase in the likelihood of a larger than 4.3 magnitude quake occurring along the San Andreas fault line through Tuesday, Oct. 4.

While the increased risk is not considered statistically significant, Gudel said such a declaration is useful in reminding Californians to check their emergency supplies and review their plans for getting through a big quake. The measure creates the California Earthquake Early Warning Program and Advisory Board and lifts a financing restriction to allow lawmakers to use general fund money on ShakeAlert.

The area, about 60 miles north of the US and Mexico border, is just below the tail end of the infamous San Andreas Fault. No big quake occurred.

This one, she said, features two "very different candidates" who will have an impact on the future of the country. Olney Avenue. "The presidency doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are", she told the cheering crowd.

"The threat of an natural disaster on the San Andreas Fault hasn't gone away, so this is another important opportunity for us to revisit our emergency plans", Ghilarducci said in a statement. "We know that there's some transfer of stress from these faults onto the main San Andreas due to their orientation, so there is some communication between them".

Lucy Jones tweeted about the temblors, saying that there have been swarms of earthquakes in the area before without bigger ones.

Official say Southern California residents should remain on heightened alert until Tuesday for the increased possibility of a major natural disaster. However, as more time passes, the chance of an quake goes down. Hence, the council fears that the slumbering San Andreas fault might be awakened anytime. Historic downtowns in the Inland Empire could be awash in fallen brick, crushing people under the weight of collapsed buildings that had never been retrofitted. Shaking waves reach as far as Bakersfield, Oxnard and Santa Barbara.
