Researchers say a massive earthquake and tsunami could soon strike the Northwest US coast, killing more than 10,000 people, flooding entire towns, and causing economic damages totaling $32 billion.

I am more interested in how high the water is predicted at sea level along the coastline of Washington, Oregon and/or California.
I other words what elevation would property survive?

I was five in the 65 quake that hit Seattle and still remember it clearly to this day experiencing it. I was also living in Lincoln City when Seattle had it's last strong and thankfully deep quake in 2001 and remember feeling the deep shake in our apartment in Lincoln City from the quake. I have since left the coast but my daughter and family live in LC. I am aware of the escape routes of Lincoln City and because of the way Lincoln City is laid out and the entrances to and from are like a bottle neck with water and rivers. Escape from the town will be not instantaneous or fast and or safe.

You dont prepare, you survive or you meet your god given fate and die. Its what you do after is what will make or break you. I love how the media gets off :) on trying to instill fear in people . If ypu think about millions of people die eveyday. Guess what i predict anyone readings this might die tonight. Thats about how stupid it is. Everyone is. gonna die someday weather someone. predicts it or not. You could think that everday when you drive your car. You have more odds dieing that way than a dang flood.

Are you kidding me. Oregon people are the ones who know how to do with out water electricity and could live in a tree if need. Trust me we will know how rlto survive. Its called gods state for a reason.

This is very alarming, and Oregon are not prepared!

The plate has been sliding down for some time now, once it can't handle the Pressure, it will bust. It's inevitable.

Well to be honest with all of you. Some people predicted the end of the World last year and look at where were standing. Here. It pisses me off that people predict these things. If it happens it happans. I don't believe this a single bit. Unless Mother Nature says so.

Anybody even give a thought to the nuclear reactors on the WEST coast? We are most likely doomed by nuclear energy, often referred to as 'clean energy'.

I've thought we were due for awhile....

I just moved to Oregon. Well, looks like it's time to pack up again! :D

Intriguing theory at the least.

over time this friction builds up & becomes so great that the plate will slip which produces a massive shockwave deep in the ocean. the result of such a shockwave is a tsunami. the San Andreas fault which lies just off the coast of NW north america slips every 300 years approximately. last one happened in 1700 so that is why we are expecting one in the near future. that is why it is 100% certain that there WILL be one. the reason they dont know when is because there is NO WAY you can predict when these plates will slip.

Dont be so arrogant.

Martin Dennett...

You obviously have not done ANY research into tectonic plates or earthquakes. Im not claiming to be a master or have a background in this field or anything, but this stuff interests me & i do research it to an extent.

Tectonic plates that make up the earths crust is always moving. These plates are seperated by fault lines which can be seen on the ocean floors or even maps of the world. Since they are continually moving they are touching each other & one ends up sliding overtop of another which causes friction.

Just in time for the legislation coming up for fema camps in the northwest. Propaganda, incitement.


exactly! RT reports anything - they had another report about how natural gas was such a great thing - no mention of the contamination of water from fracking and the dead and dying animals being found where fracking is performed. plant based fuels is the only way to go. Industrial hemp fueled the first FORD motor vehicle and the body of its engine made of hemp plastics....

so silly - everyone is underprepared so we need FEMA to come in and get in every community because we're 100% sure its going to hit but have no idea when within 50 years? So we're all supposed to live in this state of hyper alertness for something that may not happen - and if it does, you know and I know there's no preparing for it! They're talking about Tsuanmi - Really? Let's prepare for a tsunami, you go first! It is psychological torture or commonly known as problem - reaction - solution

The amusing word for me is "anytime". Researchers say it could "soon" strike.

&qu ot;The new report claims that there is a 100% chance of a monster earthquake occurring in the region – but scientists don’t know when." Contradictory or what?

" ;The Northwest US is long overdue for an earthquake" - I wasn't aware that earthquakes have a diary.

“B y the year 2060, if we have not had an earthquake, we will have exceeded 85% of all the known intervals of earthquake recurrence in 10,000 years,” Jay Patton, said in a press release. Really? The USGS holds records for the last 10,000 years? That's novel...
