This South California earthquake follows an oil pipeline rupture near Los Angeles, and a series of earthquakes at dormant volcanoes up the West Coast.

Dormant volcanoes such as Mount Hood volcano, Glacier Peak volcano, Two Sisters volcano, Mono Lake super-volcano, Mammoth Mountain volcano, Markagunt  Volcanic Plateau, Bitner Butte volcano, and Salton Sea volcano all have shown movement over the past 2 weeks.

This new Salton Sea Volcanic earthquake swarm is on TOP of the new eruption occurring off the West Coast of Oregon (along the Axial seamount).

It is also worthy to note the giant steam plume event which took place today (May 20 2015) across the West coast.
