The detectors are not "many" and the intent is that they are left running continuously lest a rare event be missed. It is in fact unlikely that none were in operation at the time of the earthquake.

"Many" is a subjective term, I suppose. Here is a list of them. It seems like many to me considering they're trying to find something that only has implied existense.

And, yes, very unlikely, but given that LIGO and TAMA were off-line while maintenance was being carried out, not inconcievable.

LIGO has recently had a couple of hundred million dollar face-lift, which they expect will enable it to detect one gravity wave per week. We'll have to wait and see, I suppose.
