Sounds like the comment you replied to is exactly correct.

We don’t have the tech or knowledge to meaningfully predict earthquakes and we won’t for a while.

Not really, the comment I replied to seemed to treat it as a given.

But like how we don't need to wait for it to rain to predict it might rain we might not need to wait for an earthquake to start to predict it's likely to happen.

We “might not” one day, but currently we cannot, so the 10 second warning is the best we have.
