VERIFY: Is this earthquake alert real?

We set out to Verify whether a post alleging an earthquake was going to happen in the next 24 hours is real or not. According to the National Weather Service, the post is fake -- there's no such thing as a 24-hour warning for an earthquake. In case an earthquake is about to occur, we would only get a 1-2 minute warning once the ShakeAlert technology is fully developed.
