DOOM PORN. Hell Yeah.
If you live in one of the following areas: Ventura, San Bernardino, San Diego, Orange, Kern, Imperial, Los Angeles, or Riverside County, be aware that there is an increased likelihood of a large EQ.
With that being said, you should be prepared. You should have an emergency kit put together and a plan on what to do to get home if you're at school, work or another place you frequent.
Be Prepared, Not Scared!

Five seconds before the South Napa Earthquake struck, UC Berkeley’s ShakeAlert detected the quake.
The university’s early warning project is intended to give residents a heads-up before an earthquake strikes and damage occurs.

But in a tweet posted on Friday, seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones said the swarm “is over & increased risk mostly gone”.
The most recent quake in the swarm above magnitude 2.4 was a magnitude 3.2 temblor that struck around 11 a.m. Thursday.
It's over for the most part, but quakes are still occurring in and around the Salton Sea area. The fear is it could set off the southern end of the San Andreas fault- and if that happened, there's no telling just how far it might rip. And the farther the tear, the larger the quake.
Seismologists added that the chances of a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake occurring over the next week is between 1 in 100 to 1 in 3,000. Without the swarm, however, the average risk for such an event striking on any given week is 1 in 6,000.
