After a very strange volcanic plume event in Nevada, a few hours later, an earthquake struck Central Eastern California along the Nevada border near Red Mountain, Mammoth Mountain, and Inyo Craters.
This earthquake struck after a period of relative silence in Eastern California, this is the first 3.0M event to strike the area in several weeks time. The actual location of the earthquake is near Aspen Springs, and Whitmore Hot Springs, California.
Ironically, the strange volcanic plume event earlier in the day occurred near Cold Springs, Nevada, and the PREVIOUS plume event in Southern California occurred near Desert Hot Springs, CA.

All the recent plume events seem to be happening near springs, volcanoes, and even some fracking locations with deep water wells.
The most recent earthquake forecast fully covered the possibility of dormant volcanoes showing movement along the West coast (in light of the other activity happening globally this should be no shock to those of us paying attention to such things).
See the earthquake forecast from April 24, 2015 below. Specifically mention the possibility of movement at Inyo Craters area at about 14min 20sec into this video:
