(LOS ANGELES) — Concerns that Southern California could in the next few days get hit by a massive earthquake, the so-called “big one,” has been met with dark humor by some on social media.
The Governor’s Office of Emergency Services asked Southern California residents to remain on heightened alert until Tuesday for the increased possibility of a major earthquake along the San Andreas fault.
Some people responded to the heightened alert with memes under the #EarthquakeAdvisory hashtag on Twitter.

Scientists estimate the probability of a quake with a magnitude of 7.0 or higher on the southern San Andreas fault to be as high as 1 in 100 and as low as 1 in 3,000.
