When I searched I didn't pull up anything relevant but your title was somewhat different.

Seems to me that most people would rather not know or be prepared for these type of events. Though a 7.5 isn't a megaquake, it has the potential to kill and injure an awful lot of people, as mentioned in the video. Survival afterwards is what people need to prepare for...we learned a lot of hard lessons here in Christchurch, New Zealand after our 6.3 killed over 180 people and destroyed most of our city, on Feb 22nd last year.

Interesting little statistic that I also posted in the quake thread:

Between 1868 and 2003 there has been at least ONE death in the US caused by an earthquake, every 1 to 9 years.

Unfortunately the last recoded death was in 2003 making 2012 a strong statistical possibility for there being another killer quake to strike somewhere in the US this year

Interesting enough, the years between 1987 and 1995 had earthquake related deaths on an almost YEARLY basis, then a gap of 8 years till the last deaths at the end of 2003 from a Central Californian quake.

There were only two non-death quake related years were 1988 and 1990 though in 1987 there were 2 deaths in the same year from 2 quakes just days apart.

Unfortunately the majority of all those quakes originated in California.
