There was a 9 percent chance that a bigger aftershock would happen after yesterday's 6.4.

The ShakeAlertLA team said they'd lower the threshold to 4.5 shaking intensity but the app wouldn't be updated until the end of the month. Yesterday's quake was an average of 3.13 shaking intensity. Tonight's felt stronger for sure. 

The QuakeAlert app by @EarlyWarningLab I wrote about here allows users to set their own thresholds for alerts. It's already used for commercial applications and will be available to the public statewide later this year. 

Looks like the ShakeAlertLA app was updated today. If you update the app, it now shows recent earthquakes. Did anyone update before tonight’s 7.1 or was this pushed more recently?

There’s no time on this update but just says today. This is for iPhone, I don’t know about Android.
