Using the "188 day cycle" theory, we SHOULD be next on the list for a big quake, on or around September 15th.
I don't believe it has anything to do with a comet or anything from space, but perhaps some internal motion under the Pacific Rim and adjoining plates.
February 27th, 2010 - Chile - 8.8
September 3rd(4th in NZ), 2010 - NZ - 7.1 on an 'unknown fault', first in 50 years.
March 11th, 2011 - Japan - 9.0
Sept 15th, 2011.
If you take a look at a map, you'll see that these sizable quakes have been making their way around the PAC RIM in a clockwise motion. If this theory holds any weight, Alaska/B.C/Wash/Cali could be next in line in four days.
The cycle seems to have started with the Chile quake, so if a large quake (6.5+) hits the Western seaboard on the 15th and confirms this theory, then something must have happened to the Earth back in 2009-2010 in order to get this cycle started.
This is looking at it from a completely natural standpoint though, not trying to speculate that these are man-made at all. Nature has cycles too!

I cant remember which thread I saw it in, but someone had mentioned hiding in doorways during a quake. Here is a link to a theory called the "triangle of life," which may provide some insight into what to do during a quake. I hope it helps. en.wikipedia.org...
Q: What is the "Triangle of Life" and is it legitimate?
A: The "Triangle of Life" is a misguided idea about the best location a person should try to occupy during an earthquake. It is listed in the Urban Legends category on the Snopes Urban Legends Reference website.
Drop, cover, and hold under a table or desk is still the best recommendation, according to the American Red Cross.
