I am confused. This is something that most all Californians know. Is this an attempt by the Cninese Gov't news agency to tell China that they should not come to the US because California will fall into the ocean?

Scientifically it is correct, for the science that they put in. Yes, a quake could happen any time, from right now till 30 years from now. That quake is suspected to be in the Hayward area according to the last data I saw. That reigon has been locked for a long time and has been building up stress.

I bet their next article will talk about the devestating earthquake pending for NYC. Yes, they have faults too.

I think I read the same study after the Big Bear/Flanders, Whittier Narrows, Northridge earthquakes... I even think Nat Geo has a documentary on it too although they're speculating that the "big one" will hit around the Salton Sea along the straightest part of the San Andreas fault causing a massive energy pulse that will literally collapse the LA skyline or something like that...

Yes, there is alway speculation after every major quake. However, I am not sure that the Salton Sea area is considered a hotspot. Granted I have not read any recent journals but as far as I remember straight sections are not considered major stress zones. Where the fault bends is where it generally builds up stress, or in places where there are few quakes.
