UPDATE: In the last seven days, central California has been shaken by a continual “Earthquake Swarm” that has reportedly produced 70 small earthquakes. This swarm has been centered on the fault lines between Los Angeles and San Francisco. In the video provided, RT correspondent Brigida Santos has the report and says that the US Geological Survey does not believe this is evidence of a big earthquake occurring in the near future. However, Jack Boatwright, a seismologist with the U.S. Geological Survey has stated before that many times Smaller quakes usually function as “foreshocks” and precede a large earthquake.

He went on to say that  “Earthquakes don’t occur out of nowhere,”. “You don’t know you have a foreshock until you have a mainshock that follows,” he said. “Some foreshock sequences start to accelerate. They start to have more and more small events, and that starts to be a key that something is happening,” he said. If you live on the West Coast you need to definitely be paying close attention to these events and not be caught off guard.
