Yes, you have no degree or formal study in earthquakes and yet, you think you're qualified to claim that one is going to hit soon?

The Cascadia Fault is a type of fault known as a MegaThrust fault. It is where the Juan de Fuca plate is going under the North American plate. The NA plate gets bound up and when it breaks loose it releases all that stored up energy which has been building for several hundred years and can cause a major earthquake 9.0 or better like the one in Indonesia in Dec. of 2004 that generated the Tsunamis that killed 250,000 or so people.
