Killer Earthquake & Massive Tsunami Likely to Devastate Pacific Northwest, Experts Warn
Oct 8, 2018 | 0 |
(CBN News) When it comes to natural disasters, the Pacific Northwest is just about the nation’s quietest corner. But the biggest killer quake to ever hit America is likely to happen right there. That’s because a fault line runs up the entire coast of Oregon and Washington that someday could cause a more devastating earthquake than anything ever predicted along California’s infamous San Andreas Fault. It’s called the Cascadia
subduction zone and sits right on the Ring of Fire that rims the Pacific Ocean. As it did regularly before pioneers began to settle the Northwest, It’ll eventually send powerful, ground-shredding shakes through much or all of the land between the coast and the mountainous Cascade Range. “It’ll spread from Canada to California over 800 miles,” Oregon State University paleoseismologist Chris Goldfinger told CBN News.
