Probably something relatively high like 1 in 100 thousand.
Parkfield has the highest probability because it has 90% (Paper: Earthquake Probability Section 2-4)
depends on which earthquake.......
1,655 killed, in Chile's earthquake of magnitude 9.5 in 1960.
there is a even chance that a earthquake will hit the same area again.
Nine were killed by the earthquake and and at least another 120 by the Tsunami that it created.
The earthquake effectively split the country in half. There was an earthquake today. An earthquake that occurs close to water can result in a very destructive tsunami.

230,000 died as a result of the earthquake.
750 people were killed in the 1906 earthquake, and it happened in Fransisco,CA, that is over 700 people
W. G. Milne has written: 'Earthquake probability' -- subject(s): Earthquake prediction, Earthquakes
34 people were killed in all.
The San Andreas fault line
The two main factors that help determine earthquake risk are the movement of seismic waves along faults, and friction. ~Meag
You can infer that it is on or near a fault line. You can also infer that a earthquake is very likely to occur there.
the sumatra earthquake was the onget earthquake in history, it lasted about 10 minutes and killed over 300,000 people
