USGS is reporting a 5.0 earthquake in the “GREATER LOS ANGELES AREA, CALIFORNIA.” It’s not too surprising, as we’ve had the Yellowstone swarm and some sizable quakes in the Pacific, one that even caused a small tsunami.
This might be the precursor to a major quake event, or this could be all there is. That’s why you prepare.
