Hey Goomba! Human beings arrived in North America over 14,000 years ago! What evidence is there for high magnitude earthquakes beyond a few hundred or a few thousand years???

Recent findings conclude that the Cascadia subduction zone is more complex and volatile than previously believed. In 2010, geologists predicted a 37 percent chance of an M8.2+ event within 50 years, and a 10 to 15 percent chance that the entire Cascadia subduction zone will rupture with an M9+ event within the same time frame. Geologists have also determined the Pacific Northwest is not prepared for such a colossal quake. The tsunami produced could reach heights of 80 to 100 feet (24 to 30 m).

Hi everyone! Download #SeismoCloud free app - to contribute to earthquake early warnings. You will be notified in real time. play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.sapienzaapps.seismocloud • When your phone is on stand-by and placed on a table, it becomes an online seismograph • Thousands of smartphones like yours will allow the monitoring of the whole territory • In the event of an earthquake, an immediate alarm will be sent to those in areas where damage may occur • The alarm (as a notification) travels faster than the seismic wave, so many may receive it a few seconds or tens of seconds before experiencing the earthquake. SeismoCloud is a crowdsourced project: everyone contributes simply by installing the app. The union of all small contributions is a great service for everyone.

Everyone should be forced to watch videos like this as it shows that Tsunami's don't just go inland a few miles as this video has shown that 80 miles inland had a Tsunami.

Does it surprise anyone that the United States government allegedly attempted to crop dust the Californian citizens with carcinogenic and sterilizing chemicals. There are few things that upsets the bag men more than having to spend the taxes they extorted from the public on disaster recovery.

There had been several European expeditions along the west coast, but no settlements, except for those of the indigenous tribes. The first European (Spanish) settlement on the US west coast was a fort (Presidio) built in the San Diego area in 1769, long after that early 1700s earthquake.

I remember staying with my grandmother during the summer in San Pedro California, and finding sea shells in the side of a cliff way up on a hill at Pecks Park. Now being a 11 year old kid in 1968, I was surprised and confused as to how the hell all these sea shells got way up here. I mean, Pecks Park is not that close to the ocean, and as mentioned, up the hill a ways. I remember it being about 2 or 3 miles from the Ports a Call village. Well not long after that, I learned the answer. Lets hope the next big one is a long time off.

I currently live in Seattle, WA. I lived in a place up on Capitol Hill just off of I-5 in having an insane view of downtown Seattle, Queen Anne Hill, the Space Needle, & parts of Lake Union. I awoke to see a fog based cloud formation that was literally a wall of thick clouds that looked like a giant tsunami that went as far as I COULD SEE from one end of town to the other. I had even taken a picture of it with my phone. I had also had a dream in which I awoke, to find my bedroom carpet wet & water in my living room. Wasn't until I got there from the bedroom that I saw the tops of West Seattle & Queen Anne Hill as "islands" in only half of the Space Needle sticking up out of the still waters in just the stem of the structure remaining.....

This is why most Oil comes from coastal areas, there where most people live and end up getting wiped out thru earth's history.
jollyandwaylo Пре 11 месеци
Oil was created millions of years ago by dying animals for the most part. Plants create natural gas. The oil fields are usually formed in a large body of water that can dry up or through plate tectonics be pushed to other places. It doesn't have to be at the coast. It has nothing to do with people or where they live.

Well our continent has East, West and southern shores surrounded by ocean. If that sea level rises, all the coastlines are affected by it. Ppl should be smart and move to higher ground. Do your own doing for you and your family. Don't wait on somebody else to be all so helpful when you'd need it most. Just remember how slow that help was to reach many ppl in New Orleans. Many homeowners lost all they had and nothing to bankroll themselves with for a new home. Living in old buildings once meant for other things, trying to find some way back to their life. It was heartbreaking. Best to pay attention to warnings when it becomes more obvious that there will be a problem. I was raised in the hills of WV, and never wanted to go back because of how poor many communities were. I mean, it could get you bogged down in winter or flooded in, in the spring and sometimes the summer. Guyandot river flooding(Its another north going river). Dams now stall most of that mine water, but it still gets high at times during heavy rains and they have to release some of the dam waters. But, as a place its well away from coastal shores. Its just an idea that some may want to think about. Getting your children into a safer area to grow up in and raise their children in. Just make sure you have a good income tho. Those areas aren't called poor for nothing. All the mines are mostly gone now. Railroad work dried up with that. Little left for the railroad in these places, except for hauling big cargo. They leave home grounds to find work in nearby cities, but not much work left that students or low income families don't already have. I would like to see the local govs in each state in the mountain areas there do some pooling of some of the best business minds to see if they can find some sort of viable businesses to create jobs, and products that our world may soon need. Maybe think futuristic needs, but with a slow process of that, because they also need to be selling now products too, to stay relative and productive. I try to raise these idea a lot whenever I can. Doesn't hurt.

@jollyandwaylo Could be wrong but the cascadia subduction zone reaches all the way to Northern California. If it were to be hit by the wave it would then would wipe out a third of all fruit's, vegetables, nuts. Along with polluting the ocean, here in Washington state we still deal with debris washing up on our shores from the Japan incident. Not to mention Boeing, Amazon, Microsoft all being wiped out may seem small compared to Yellowstone or something that catostropic. But the effects caused by the disaster wouldn't limit itself to just the pnw but alot of the Pacific region as we still see with Japan. Waste plastic is becoming a major source of environmental pollution, including as a significant contributor of greenhouse gases, a principle cause of global warming so the two go hand and hand.
jollyandwaylo Пре 11 месеци
We are acting and have been acting for decades. All building codes have been changed to reflect earthquake danger. Global warming is a far more dangerous situation because it doesn't just affect a small region.

The land that subsided as much as 5 feet during the earthquake in 1700 does not appear to have risen back up to its previous level, at least not where the ghost forest is located. I think that this fact would weigh against another fault release coming soon. Of course, there are a myriad of other things going on that could cause one to happen soon. I would not live permanently or own property close to the coast along that zone.
