I'm not sure whether Ron was serious or kidding, but the 6.1
quake near Palm Springs early on Thursday has increased the
risk that the same part of the fault will have a major quake
in the 72 hours following.  The local papers said that there
was a 5% chance of an aftershock bigger than the original

That's the bad news.  The good news is that Palm Springs is
400 miles from Mountain View, and that the risk of a major
quake near here is no different now than at any other time.

I would advise you not to change your plans to travel to
Mountain View because of fear of a large earthquake.
