Scientists predict thousands will die from earthquake expected anytime on US West Coast

Scientists predict thousands will die from earthquake expected anytime on US West Coast

(from rt.com:)

“The last high magnitude earthquake in the region occurred in the year 1700 in the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The quake had a magnitude between 8.7 and 9.2, and geologists in 2010 predicted that there is a 37 percent change of another such quake occurring within 50 years. The new report claims that there is a 100 percent chance of a monster earthquake occurring in the region – but scientists don’t know when.”

Great, that’s where we are at. 😉

Anyhow, interesting other expected in California, new technology to predict the last minute, interesting considerations on how animals are quite skilled at the issue, and other interesting considerations.

Here the whole collection from the feds, at the USGS site.
