There's been a swarm of earthquakes this past week out by the Salton Sea. In the L.A. Times today there was some concern because this swarm bisects the San Andreas fault.
Having lived in Northridge at the time of the Northridge quake, I feel a special commitment to news of possible earthquakes. The week before the Northridge quake, there was a swarm of small quakes in the Santa Monica bay.
We live by the little purple circle. The San Andreas fault is that long line that parallels the coast. You can see there have been 721 quakes recorded over a week. It's usually around 400.
