MercifulBoss, on average there are 12,000 to 14,000 earthquakes each year. And on average of those 12,000 to 14,000 earthquakes only 18 are major (7.0 to 7.9) and only 1 is a great earthquake (8.0+). So your actually more likely to be in minor earthquake then in a major or great earthquake.

These facts come from the USGS

And I agree with Alex, while not likely to be the next Chernobyl, this situation could get ugly fast. At least two nuclear plants have had partial meltdowns.
