A massive earthquake like the one that unleashed a giant tsunami and killed nearly 16,000 people in Japan a year ago not only could happen here in the U.S., but probably will — and relatively soon in terms of seismological history.

I think the scary thing is that Japan had better earthquake proof buildings than we have in North America. They also had 30 foot high tsunami walls in high risk areas. They still had massive damage as we all saw.
One seismologist on PBS said that we have to improve our building codes to catch up to those of Japan's, and then some.
