I'm only studying earthquakes in Oklahoma, I really don't care about earthquakes out in California right now.
There will be "NO" large earthquake in California for the next 3-4 days though, if that is what you need to hear; simply because this earthquake
actually "struck" in Oklahoma instead of releasing like the one before it did.
The one before it released without quaking, and if we look at a map about 4 days later off the coast of Oregon was this baby.

This particular earthquake that I'm studying in Oklahoma has already quaked in Oklahoma. I'm only watching this one right now to see how long it
takes for the ground to settle back into place; or how long its detectable after it quaked. In this particular case the ground finally settled back
into place sometime between 4:44 PM and 5 PM today. Which means it was detectable and/or mappable for 1.5 days, minus about 2 hours; or about 33.5-34
hours after the earthquake to place. Signal is gone.
People are safe in California for the next three days.
It will be interesting to see if the next earthquake cell that releases without quaking that is detected from SSE or about 10-15 degrees east of
straight south will end up with another large earthquake striking 3-4 days later in the California/Oregon region. Or, one day after the release down
near Mexico City, or a Central American country. Or, if no larger earthquake will strike in any of those regions. We shall wait and for such an
earthquake cell to be detected in the SSE direction or 10-15 degrees east of straight south from here, and see what happens within the next 4 days
after it releases without quaking.
For now, people are safe in Cali; as you call it.
