#EarthquakeWarning After 290 Earthquakes In 104 Hours In So. Calif. ‘Swarm’

But though the swarm appears to be tapering off Friday, that doesn’t mean that we’re in the clear quake-wise, officials warn. The California Office of Emergency Services even issued an “earthquake advisory” to remind Southern California residents to always be prepared for temblors.
This comes after the U.S. Geological Survey found the Salton Sea swarm may add stress to the San Andreas Fault, by the slightest amount, potentially increasing the likelihood of an earthquake of magnitude-7 between now and Oct. 4.
