Here is the earthquake forecast

Earth Pages News of June 2005 reported on the development by the US Geological Survey of the first daily seismic forecasting service, which covers California.  It has a web site at http://pasadena.wr.usgs.gov/step.   The forecast is for events, generally aftershocks of earlier earthquakes, with sufficient energy to throw objects off shelves (Modified Mercalli Index VI). On June 30 2005, Lake Tahoe had a chance around 1 in 100 of such a tremblor, with the length of the San Andreas and related fault systems highlighted at between 1 in 10 000 to 1000.  Of course, it will take some time before people link as quickly as they do to the weather forecast.
