No Earthquake Watch

There is no such thing as an “earthquake watch.” Unlike tornadoes and hurricanes, they strike without warning and cannot be predicted (so far). There’s also no such thing as “earthquake weather”…and I say this as a lifelong Californian.

    Dr. Kate Hutton said it best (and I’m paraphrasing): “Earthquakes happen miles below the surface. There is no weather there. Therefore, there is no such thing as earthquake weather.” QED
