I'm not always into the predicted doom threads, but for JET Propulsion Laboratory to come out and say this.... It raised an eyebrow.

Big earthquake chances high for Los Angeles County fault, JPL scientist’s study says

The "probability is 99.9 percent" that an earthquake measuring 5.0 or greater will occur within the next two and a half years on or near the same faults that caused the March 28, 2014 La Habra quake in the San Gabriel Valley, according to a study by a JPL geophysicist.

And a much larger earthquake of magnitude 6 or above has a 35 percent chance of happening along or near the same fault lines in that time frame, the study says. The quake could occur anywhere within 100 kilometers - about 60 miles - of the 2014 quake, the study says.

The study that was published Oct. 1 and revised on Oct. 7 on the online Earth and Space Science website, was authored by Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Andrea Donnellan along with a number of other earthquake scientists under the headline "Potential for a large earthquake near Los Angeles inferred from the 2014 La Habra earthquake."
