    Earthquakes can happen at anytime anywhere. Unfortunately all we can do is predict a probability of an earthquake, which is based on how close an area is to a fault boundary ex. San Andreas Fault, is more prone to earthquakes than ex. Florida. Being that this earthquake has occurred there is more of a possibility of aftershocks, but no definite proof of a reoccurring earthquake. I would not worry to much, but you should always be prepared and have a good hazard plan if a worse earthquake should ever happen in the future.

    This site explains the fault you live by.
