One small 1.4 magnitude aftershock hit the Loma Linda area after yesterday's 4.0 shaker, but the Earth pretty much stood still in Southern California for the last 24 hours. Two other 1.4 quakes were reported near Fontana and Murrieta Hot Springs and a very minor 0.6 near Littlerock (East of Palmdale). The recent heat wave is a good reminder for earthquake preparation. What if "The Big One" hit in the middle of that? Would you be prepared?
