Until Carmelo’s Tweet, there hadn’t been many calls for Golden State to switch things up.

We use past seismicity, the stress imparted by recent large and moderate earthquakes and the equations governing how fault friction varies in time and space (‘rate-state friction’) to estimate the likelihood of future earthquakes of different sizes.” … [Read more...] about San Andreas Fault earthquake more likely after Ridgecrest quakes, scientists warn
