Scientists can not predict when and where earthquakes will occur because it is difficult to know exactly when and where Tectonic plates will slip past each other. Maybe this is why you are hearing rumours

You can't predict an earthquake . Not down to the day, at least. They just happen. People are just freaking out because of the one in Japan.

Earthquakes happen everyday in California . But nobody can predict where or when they will happen and an 8.8 would be by far the biggest quake in modern California history so id say it's pretty unlikely

well, it depends! you have to mention whether it has shaken enough or not! what was the Richter scale? for example if it was above 7, you don't need to clean up to end of your life :)
