The region where the quakes are occurring is small  volcanic area . There 
have been small eruptions and lava flows within the past century. The China 
Lake Navy base in that area  actually has a geothermal power or heating 
system which exploits heat from below  the lava field . There are small 
cinder cones clearly visible from highway 395 as you drive through the Owens 

However there was a very large quake in that area in 1872 estimated between 
7.6 and 8.

More likely just a small swarm but who knows .

Subject: Risk of Large earthquake in Californina!

Hi all,

I've been watching the earthquakes that have been happening in
Californina this past minites. This earthquakes look like they are a
pre-earthquake squance to a bigger earthquake. I at least estimate that
to be a higher chance, then it not to be. I would give it about 60%
chance of happening, and about 40% chance of not happening. There is
also a small earthquake pattern that I am seeing on local sensor that
are also giving me the nessary clues to this.

I don't have a time a good timeframe at this momemt. But this might
happen in the next 2 - 180 hours time period. I might get a good time
frame, but I also might not get one at all.
