Eruptions at the Mono-Inyo Craters volcanic field occurred at 500-year intervals over the past 2,000-3,000 years. The most recent eruption in the region was at Mono Lake between 1720 and 1850 A.D. A dome grew on the lake floor and emerged to make Paoha Island.

offshoot fault from the San Andreas that runs right through this area

the area getting the quakes?

Could recent tremors be more practicing?
Cluster atomic bombs?
Nonsense maybe, but plausible to some degree.
