The Cascadia Subduction Zone

A frighteningly fascinating article about the big one predicted to hit the Pacific NW, maybe sooner than later.

Given enough time the entire planet's crust will be churned under and spit out again. Get used to it

Ya, that's why my wife made us leave! Just kinda kidding.

Growing up in the Pacific northwest, earthquake drills were a normal part of the education. They've really been saying the big one's coming for at least the last 30 years. We'll probably get hit by a tornado here in Minnesota before Seattle gets wiped out, but who knows. The two "minor" earthquakes I did experience in Seattle were pretty freaky.

Good article.
