As L.A. Melts, Earthquake Hoax Freaks People Out

Yes, it was hot on Monday. Hottest recorded temperature in Los Angeles history.

But no, we'll never know how hot it really got. The National Weather Service's official thermometer at USC made it to 113 degrees at 12:15 p.m. -- but then stopped working. So who knows, the temperature may have even been higher. But nonetheless, L.A. beat its previous record, reached on June 26, 1990.

Yes, it was hot on Monday.

But no, there's no such thing as "earthquake weather." And the spooky "MAJOR EARTHQUAKE WARNING" spreading on Twitter? A hoax. Say it with me: No one can predict an earthquake. It'd be nice, but it just isn't possible right now.

Yes, it was hot on Monday.

Hope you didn't melt.
