When California DOES eventually have the BIG earthquake as predicted, how will that affect the rest of the US?

Everyone knows the BIG earthquake has yet to happen and noone knows exactly when. Experts all say that it WILL happen eventually. Suppose it happens in one or two months: how will that affect the United States economy? the hospital industry, first aid and the blood supply? Suppose 1/4 of California suffers huge tragedies from this and 1,000,000+ are killed or hurt....what will the affect be on the rest of the United States? What countries (if any) will offer assistance to the United States in repair work, financial, and first aid assistance?
