Northwest Earthquake Risk in U.S. Looms Large: 40% Chance of Major Earthquake Within 50 Years
www.sciencedaily.com...




Written by researchers at Oregon State University, and published online by the U.S. Geological Survey, the study concludes that there is a 40 percent chance of a major earthquake in the Coos Bay, Ore., region during the next 50 years. And that earthquake could approach the intensity of the Tohoku quake that devastated Japan in March of 2011.

"The southern margin of Cascadia has a much higher recurrence level for major earthquakes than the northern end and, frankly, it is overdue for a rupture," said Chris Goldfinger, a professor in OSU's College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences and lead author of the study. "That doesn't mean that an earthquake couldn't strike first along the northern half, from Newport, Ore., to Vancouver Island.


The following is worth mentioning...




Oregon coast may be most vulnerable based on recurrence frequency.


I've personally never been a fan of theories or predictions based on recurrence frequencies, for they actually describe or assess the likely hood of events inaccurately, and can hardly be used for models in forecasting future events.

From Ice Ages, global climate change, to earthquakes and so on... very little truths are revealed just by simply looking at recurrence frequencies. I suppose though... we're always looking for patterns to describe reality. A.k.a. mathematics.




With the likelihood of a major earthquake and possible tsunami looming, coastal leaders and residents face the unenviable task of how to prepare for such events. Patrick Corcoran, a hazards outreach specialist with OSU's Sea Grant Extension program, says West Coast residents need to align their behavior with this kind of research.

"Now that we understand our vulnerability to mega-quakes and tsunamis, we need to develop a culture that is prepared at a level commensurate with the risk," Corcoran said. "Unlike Japan, which has frequent earthquakes and thus is more culturally prepared for them, we in the Pacific Northwest have not had a mega-quake since European settlement. And since we have no culture of earthquakes, we have no culture of preparedness.

"The research, though, is compelling," he added. "It clearly shows that our region has a long history of these events, and the single most important thing we can do is begin 'expecting' a mega-quake, then we can't help but start preparing for it."


If they haven't yet, I'd suggest building more FEMA camps in the area... as well, an effort to educate the people of that region as to the likely hood of a earthquake tsunami event.

I swear... that if in my life time, something does happen in that area, and they are unprepared. I will be disappointed.

This is all part of an effort to set up a false flag natural disaster, in which will be used to depopulate the world!

How? This won't effect 99.9999% of people on the Earth. West coast USA is far from the world.

You guys do know that Cascadia and San Andreas are one big fault, as they are connected, right. And, they go together far more than they go seperately.

Just google, Monster Quake Are We Next, and watch the program, it has the latest information.

It's possible that this event would not only affect the immediate area...

It's not far from me, not comforting at all. But hey as long as the east coast is safe right?

No it would be an awful tragedy if it happens. But I was replying to the OP where it said it was a plot to depopulate the entire world.

so let me get this strait. You are trying to sell us a spin that includes a major conspiracy to depopulate the world with a large earthquake off the southern Oregon Coast.

False Flag ? Global Depopulation?
First this study is 13yrs in the making
Last its hardly breaking news which means its Largely known and Generally Excepted.

what I have trouble with is your spin of Global Depopulation by a False Flag Event Conspired by I assume those who wrote the Georgia Guide Stones.
Here I will finish your story for you.

Folks here we go
, we now have proof that the Builderburgers are trying to kill us off with yet another Operation of Global Depopulation using HAARP to cause a devistating Earthquake off the Coast of Oregon. This expected Earthquake measuring 9,0 could take out the Pacifica and send Tsunami to Japan and finishthem off. Insider Whistle Blowers conclude this will be generated by HAARP in Alaska.
