[californiadisasters] Thursday's Predicted Earthquake Downgraded to Hoax

Despite what you've read on the Internet, an earthquake is not scheduled for Sept. 30.

Updated 1:50 PM PDT, Tue, Sep 28, 2010
There will not be a major earthquake on Thursday despite the panicked warnings circulating on Twitter.

Or, if there is a major earthquake on Thursday, we can safely say it was just a coincidence.

The quake hoax got steam Monday night as users passed along this warning, LAist reported:

"MAJOR EARTHQUAKE WARNING; 6.0 to 7.0 earthquake likely in S California; Sep 30. Foreshocks Sep 27-28: Please Retweet."
