A few days ago we had a different thread started on ATS, regarding an ocean data buoy that quickly fell which alerted people to an "event" in the Cascadia Subduction Zone off the west coast of Oregon/Washington... Well, that thread was quickly cut short once a geologist came out attempting to debunk any claims... Well, I live in Seattle, and my landlord just emailed me a story about this exact threat and a link to a story with a video that shows a mini-tsunami off the coast of washington near near pacific beach... Below is the clip that was posted..

I didn't see this posted on ATS yet, so I do apologize if it already was, but living here I do occasionally worry about the "big one" (EQ) happening off the coast.. Can anyone give any ideas to the risk of these claims? Should we make anything of them? My landlord gave me a lot of weird EQ preparation instructions. Coming from the midwest (chicago) i'm not used to any of this...

Interesting video, right?

*** And in the link is a 1 minute clip without this guys commentary, I don't know who he is, but I just wanted the same footage that the link was sharing.

Some kind of storm surge or other?

What a strange occurence!

Any honest input to if this should be of any concern to me, please share... I'm new to the area, never lived on a coast, and certainly never lived in a volatile EQ zone that's long overdue... Is water running up like that normal? Doesn't seem like simple waves going in and out to me, that seems like it was pushed forward by some event.

Does the King Tide typically surge in like that? I'm not familiar with this event.

from my exp of living on a coast all my life.....that is no storm surge,or rouge wave.If a bouy showed a sudden drop,then I would say its a mini tsunami.

I think in the 1st link it describes as simular to a storm surge but I cant say for certian, maybe not but more intense in the winter...I know in past a state of emergency has been declared here due to fast flooding, nothing super serious though in terms of fatalities..it's predictably to some degree. I remember hearing it was going to be here a few days ago but fizzled out..perhaps it just ended up a stones throw down the coast.

Interesting if a storm surge could move in like that.. I guess being nestled away in the midwest my whole life I never really knew about these type of things. scary stuff if this is common at all..

The Kraken must have been swimming nearby, that's the only explanation.

I'm glad no one was injured

Having reviewed some storm surge footage, I do not think that is what you saw. I think what you saw resembled quake response more than anything else. It was too fast and long in duration, one long pulse, rather than several short ones.

Bloody ell fire as they say up North.

Im not positive about it being a King Tide, some posters think not and they could be right, but the timing of it is interesting and geographiclly close

Possibly a tidal bore coming in to Wilapa Bay?

It certainly looks like one. What would cause it?

Thanks for the article! The writer definitely had me feeling better about the tsunami risk being quite low in Seattle.. From my understanding, from all the locals, the big risk to Seattle, other than a 8+ EQ is Mt Rainier blowing its top off, and the Lahars, pyroclastic flow to follow..
