Those of us in Northern San Diego County know all too well about the phenomenon of these cluster 'quakes. Both faults are right in this county's back yard!

The Cahuilla swarm occurred between the San Jacinto and Elsinore faults, which began back in 2016...this could be the extension of the same phenomenon. So today in 2020, what with COVID19, racial inharmony, rampant wildfire and political intrigue, this could shake us to our senses, should it become more than just a repetitive event with no substantial damage anywhere.

Or perhaps it's something else... ;->

The Salton Sea was created by a man-made accident.

Nature is reversing the course, by attempting to drain the lake and return the land to its natural condition by creating fissures or one big sinkhole. :)

Swarm still occurring. I read where this could go on for a couple of weeks. Below is a display of those over 2.5 in magnitude. The red one is the latest:
