Occasionally. Alaska is the state that has the most earthquakes in America. It is also the site of the 2nd largest earthquake ever recorded by man (magnitude 9.2) and the largest in the US which occurred in Prince William Sound near Anchorage on Friday, March 27, 1964.

Although we are not able to predict individual earthquakes, the world's largest earthquakes do have a clear spatial pattern.

Just about everywhere on Earth can have earthquakes. Some locations are more known for it than others, but it turns out that one of the largest earthquakes ever in the United States was in Missouri, a location not particularly noted for being earthquake-prone. Anywhere there's a fault, there can be earthquakes. The recent (November 2011) Oklahoma quakes occurred along the Wilzetta fault.

Convergent boundaries where large scale thrust faulting occurs tend to have the largest magnitude earthquakes. For wxample the subduction boundary between the Pacific plate and the South American plate was responsible for the largest magnitude earthquake ever recorded (the magnitude 9.5 Valdivia earthquake that occurred in 1960 in Chile).
