Should LA be worried about the 100 aftershocks in 2 days?

Apparently there is a 5% chance that Friday’s quake which measured 5.1 on the Richter Scale is a a foreshock to a bigger quake. Should LA residents be worried (and my brother on holiday over there)?

Hundreds of shocks might lead to something bigger

  1. I think they should be worried about another future quake because if it happened once it could be more then likely to happen again. Also they would be worried because people can die from earthquakes and I would not advise people to go over there on holiday for quite some time because it might happen again soon .

  2. LA people should be worried and take action as it is more then likely to happen again as it was 5.1 on the Richter scale. Also that 5% can increase over time which can lead to the quake increasing in its chances.
