The Imminent, Massive Earthquake That May Soon Devastate the Pacific Northwest


The Pacific Northwest may get a massive earthquake in the near future, but it may not happen where you think it could. Scientists recently discovered the Cascadia subduction zone and within it there is a major risk of seismic activity.

The zone is about 30 times the size of California's San Andreas fault and it includes  Vancouver Island, Washington, Oregon, and Northern California. It also happens to be located in the notorious Ring of Fire area.

Scientists predict there will be an earthquake in the Cascadia subduction zone in the next 50 years. There is also a 1 in 10 chance of that earthquake could be a devastating one.

Some experts predict it will be anywhere between 8.7 and 9.2 with the strong possibility of a tsunami measuring 100 feet high.

    Well, its not like we haven’t been warned since the 70’s..

    It could happen tomorrow. Or in a hundred thousand years. I can assure you, people will not be ready for it. In preparing for other disasters, only a few will be semi ready for it. Human nature is such that’s it’s hard to fully prepare for something that may or may not happen in one’s own lifetime.

    They’ve been saying this for years. I know this because I live there.

    Better go ahead and let them succeed that way the tax payers don’t have to cover the bill u know since they seem not to care about us fly over states they so desperately wanna leave

    no geologist worth their salt will ever say anything like , “the big one will happen soon”. it is impossable to predict an earthquake.

  7. Michael McMahon said:

    if that happens, then maybe California will break off and float away taking the ninth circus court with it. he he.

    The most premium property, for beauty, springs, and waterways, are places that get the most geological uplift.
    Earthquake safe countrie is boring, flat, hills rounded off from erosion. The poor, on poor real estate, may weather the storm better then the wealthy glammer cast class.

    Ah, the age-old question. “Juan de Fuca we supposed to have this earthquake??”

    OMG-!! This, and the Fukushima radiation combined sound like the plot for a grade B movie on the late, late show. But it’s not a joke. This is real, and almost too much to imagine. Preppers: how do you prep for this-??

    What’s the worst that can happen, we lose California? Will anyone really miss it?

    There has actually been some funding going into initiatives for preparation. For a while there last year there were lots of TV spots and radio infomercials regarding this subject. My wife works in the public sector for a city health dept. She signed up for the domestic preparedness team. They had all kinds of information to give out and SHTF scenarios under discussion. Who would be in which group and hierarchy. After seeing what they had I have to say that people better prepare on their own. No way will the government be able to help you for at least 2 weeks or even months in some cases. The ground essentially turns to quicksand and a HUGE tsunami will hit coming up to a mile inland. Preparedness means jumping in your car with no provisions and driving east as quickly as you can. Or get to high ground if near the ocean.

    These two plates must both be Democrat plates, keep promising to do something year after year and nothing ever really happens…

    It has been “imminent” since I was a child. I’m not saying don’t prepare, but imminent can mean anytime in the next 200 years…

  15. Kenna Morton said:

    Time for you to review your geology, where earthquake faults lye and what partially determines their potential strength.. And, which ones have the capability of grand scale mass destruction. It’s not California, it is the Cascadia Range in the Pacific North West.

  16. Larry Swope said:

    Yes I know, I’ve lived here my whole life. I do know a big one is expected. I’ve been hearing this for 20+ years now.

  17. Robert Pate said:

    If it goes ,I believe it will b because of a nuke bomb,and they will try to pass it off as a quake,to ppl,

    That’s actually a GOOD thing. We don’t want those plates to live up to “their” promise.
