The USGS has downgraded it to a 5.4 magnitude

USGS 5.4 Greater Los Angeles

Is this the one experts were expecting...?

I would say that a bigger one can still come.

So the second quake was bigger than the first? Isn't that unusual?

Just asking.

The foreshock sequences on East Pacific Rise transform faults can be used to predict (retrospectively) earthquakes of magnitude 5.4 or greater, in narrow spatial and temporal windows and with a high probability gain.
