There have been more than 700 earthquakes recorded in the Fontana area since May 25, ranging from magnitude 0.7 to magnitude 3.2, recorded Wednesday at 5:20 p.m., according to Caltech staff seismologist Jen Andrews.
That is certainly a lot of earthquakes, but is this sort of activity unusual?
Likelihood - Event - Quakes - Period - Scientist
The likelihood of a larger seismic event, given so many quakes over such an extended period, is higher than normal, the scientist said.
“People ought to be concerned,” said Hauksson. “This is probably the most prolific swarm in that area of the Fontana seismic zone that we’ve seen in the past three decades.”
Activity - Earthquake

But one day it is coming. In fact, scientists have told us that one day the entire San Andreas fault could “could unzip all at once”. And when that day finally arrives, there might not be any warning at all.

In any home in seismically risky areas of California, experts recommend removing heavy objects around beds, strapping bookcases and dressers to walls, anchoring flat-screen televisions to walls, installing toddler safety latches on kitchen cabinets, and ensuring frames are attached to walls with quake-friendly hooks.
Hopefully there will not be a major quake any time soon, but over the past few days another ominous sign has made news.
Saturday - Seepage - Enough - Interests - Tourists
And on Saturday, more seepage. Enough to draw the interests of tourists and residents alike.
CBS2’s Jake Reiner said tourists and residents alike have been coming to the area marveling at the bubbling tar.
Once again, this might be nothing.
“You see a little bit of tar oozing up between the pavement,” Kogan says, “all over the neighborhood. That’s not unusual but this seems to be flow tar. I’ve never seen this before.”
Hissing - Sound
