When it comes to the “swarmageddon” of small earthquakes happening about 40 miles east of downtown LA for the past 3 weeks, reactions have been mixed. https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-earthquake-swarm-small-20190619-story.html …
California has small quakes all the time, but not all of them create the same effect. Some bring more danger than others. https://lat.ms/2MxYuGU
Luckily, experts have a better look than ever before on California’s smaller earthquakes, as officials build out an earthquake early warning system.
Ultimately, the chance of a smaller earthquake triggering something far bigger is pretty remote, writes @ronlin. The last mega-earthquake preceded by small quakes in Southern California struck in 1857.
Still, what can you do? If you’re living in a swarm - even a gentle one - strap down your bookcases just in case.
And it never hurts to have your earthquake emergency kit ready.
