Foreshocks are medium-sized earthquakes that precede major quakes.
An increase in foreshock activity (combined with purported indications like ground water levels and strange animal behavior) enabled the successful evacuation of a million people one day before the February 4, 1975 M7.3 Haicheng earthquake by the China State Seismological Bureau.
The Xiuyan M5.3 earthquake (29 November 1999) is another example where a successful prediction was issued, based on a correct interpretation of an earthquake swarm as foreshocks.
While 50% of major earthquakes are preceded by foreshocks, only about 5-10% of small earthquakes turn out to be foreshocks, leading to false warnings

I don't wanna feel like a fear monger but this is getting pretty crazy!Why do I have the feeling that the Big One is yet to come?
Because the big one IS coming, and over due. We all get that feeling.
Though, for all of you wishing for it to get over with already, I'd beg you not to have such wishful thinking. I live 10 minutes from the fault in Southern California. There are things I wanna do, such as have a relatively normal life, have kids, get married, etc.
I can't do those things when a 9.0+ hits and I'm forced to survive, if I don't die in the quake itself.
It doesn't help when the whole world wishes for my state to fall into the ocean.

I think some people are missing the point on this. The point of this thread was never the size of the earthquake, but that it was on the same 37 degrees as the 2 yesterday. Just seems a bit strange, I know nothing really about this sort of stuff, have all these quakes occured on the same fault line or something?
P.S I dont want America to be destroyed, I plan on saving enough money to spend a year holiday in america driving from one side to the other, would be alot harder if there was a big hole in the middle of it
