You sound pretty in the know about this stuff.

What do you think?


I don't know anything more than reading everything about the coming megaquake by the expersta that I think everyone living along it has read.
I do however watch the quakes everyday. I have seen a change and that makes me watch all the more, I don't think these things give a lot of warning or Japan would not have suffered as much!

The truth of it is we are heading for a mega earth shaking disappear so we are just a tiny part of it.

All I can think about is that big underground tunnel..ugggg
something about that isn't right. Can you even imagine that during an earthquake. I'd take my chances in a high rise over
that tunnel any day.


You were screwed either way, if you were on the Viaduct above ground, you would be pancaked when the large EQ hits... with the tunnel system, you will be dealing with the likelihood of the tunnel collapsing in on itself, with all the water from the Pugent sound rushing in... Both ways sucks, IMO... haha


Hey: Chicago Guy. You're now living in Seattle. It's PUGET Sound, with no "the" Not: 'The Pugent Sound' but just Puget Sound.

The best way to get back at him to say Illinois like Illinoise, when people pronounce that S it drives anyone from the area completely nuts. There was a commercial here in Wisconsin where the lady made it a point of saying Illinoissssssssss. It was soon taken off and they had her pronounce it correctly.

Worth reading up!



Many seismologists believe the Pacific Northwest especially is overdue for an earthquake that could register at over 8.0 on the Richter scale, and Cutts said such a seismic event is inevitable, with a devastating impact to the economy and quality of life. “If we had this happen tomorrow, we’d be looking at thousands of people dead.

You’re also talking about months of recovery,” Cutts said. “We really need to increase the public awareness of the possibilities. Emergency managers are always thinking about what could happen, but Joe Taxpayer doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about it.”


Well this is something new, glad to see them planning. We can't really no money to move stuck near the beach waiting, but we are so old what does it matter, it's the kids and young ones around here we worry for!




A new bill—HR 876, the Pacific Northwest Earthquake Preparedness Act of 2019—is the latest sign that the idea of an early warning system for the Pacific Northwest’s version of the “Big One” is gaining traction. Sponsored by Democratic congressman Peter DeFazio, representing the 4th Congressional District in Oregon, HR 876 passed the House on February 6 with a voice vote, and is now looking for a companion bill in the Senate.

The bill’s main objective is to get the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to investigate the best way to purchase and set up an early warning system for the Pacific Northwest. This would require the President to establish an Earthquake and Tsunami Task Force for the region. Led by FEMA, such a task force would bring together multiple agencies, institutions and stakeholders to develop a strategy to plan for, mitigate, respond to and recover from a major quake and tsunami at the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

Don't be nervous. Google this: "historical subduction events" ... be amazed!!

There is an prophecy of the three sister old volcanic range becoming active again.

I agree, if we do not have it in the next 500 years I'm going to start to get worried.

here is a good link explaining what they found en.wikipedia.org...

people studying mt st helen eruptions paddled up a river and found a forest of dead tree stumps sticking out of the water, they thought this was from a slow rise in sea water, closer inspection reveleaed the land dropped suddenly 2 meters from an earthquake..............tree rings plus .anecdotes gathered from 6 first nation groups they were able to come up with a n estimated date of winter 1700.

Under a top layer of sand, A man uncovered a distinct plant—arrowgrass—that had grown in a layer of marsh soil. This finding was evidence that the ground had suddenly sunk under sea level, causing saltwater to kill the vegetation. The event had happened so quickly that the top layer of sand sealed away the air, thus preserving centuries-old plants.[6]

also at that time japan had what they called an orphan tsunami (16 feet) meaning there was no earthquake in japan,, it coincides at the time of this huge quake in cascadia and the tsunami traveled across...they look at all this and can determine the approximate strength of this earthquake.

this is a VERY long sloping fault and part of it is totally locked and not slipping at all and it is So long there can be a mega thrust

Wow 9.0! have any idea how they came up with that number if it was back in the 1700?

www.washington.edu... older link from 2017 that has 50 simulations of how bad it could be

The research was done as part of the M9 Project, a National Science Foundation-funded effort to figure out what a magnitude-9 earthquake might look like in the Pacific Northwest and how people can prepare. Two publications are being reviewed by the USGS, and engineers are already using the simulation results to assess how tall buildings in Seattle might respond to the predicted pattern of shaking. As a new employee of the USGS, Wirth will now use geological clues to narrow down the possible earthquake scenarios. “We’ve identified what parameters we think are important,” Wirth said. “I think there’s a future in using geologic evidence to constrain these parameters, and maybe improve our estimate of seismic hazard in the Pacific Northwest.” The research was funded by the National Science Foundation. Other co-authors are Nasser Marafi, a UW doctoral student in civil and environmental engineering; John Vidale, a former UW professor now at the University of Southern California; and Bill Stephenson with the USGS.

I wonder about the 10,000 estimated dead, you would think casualties would be much higher.
I think they fluffed those numbers a little.

Here is some doom porn:


So right now they say it is a 14 month cycle, and every time it starts, there is a chance of the Cascadia rupturing...

It could happen...or not.

Cool video! I think those numbers are based on a certain model, looks like there are dozens and dozens of models, some probably with a higher death rate..

My sister lives right out where those quakes are happening in Kansas. A bit scary. There are extensive salt mines in that area. I wonder if that has anything to do with it, but I don't really see how. The are is geologically stable as a rock historically.
