The Science of EarthquakesCan scientists predict earthquakes?
No, and it is unlikely they will ever be able to predict them. Scientists have tried many different ways of predicting earthquakes, but none have been successful. On any particular fault, scientists know there will be another earthquake sometime in the future, but they have no way of telling when it will happen.
Scientists may not be able to predict earthquakes but you know one day the San Andreas fault will separate and drastically reduce the size of California.

Edit: Nope, that was a 4.5.
