California's Tasting Earth Shakes?

Earth                 Shake

In The Wall Street Journal it was said that Borrego Springs Resort had "some items fall off shelves and water slosh out of the pool." after a 5.4 Earthquake in Palm Springs, California last Wednesday.  The report also said that the earthquake was felt for 30 seconds and extend as far as 100 miles in diameter!  Could this be a preface of what's to come?  In a Fox News Article it reported :

"... scientists believe a tremendous earthquake in California is almost inevitable. In 2008, a multi-disciplinary collaboration of scientists and engineers released the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast (UCERF), which predicts a 99.7 percent likelihood of a 6.7 or larger earthquake in California in the next 30 years."

The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake was measured around 7.7 - 7.9.  Could this next big quake out do what its predecessor did?  Will San Francisco fall off into the ocean this time?

Stay tuned and remember ... Not all shakes taste great
