FEMA warns California! Get off the coast! M9 or greater is Imminent!
Scientists warns California! Get off the coast! M9 or greater is Imminent! Earth crustal shift, Cascadia Subduction Zone about to slip! Even the New Madrid has tripled in earthquake swarms! Prepare Now!!
Many believe, that all these “movements” of awareness,and increasing over the past 5 years, is part of a larger problem. The government has been preparing with underground shelters.Moving strategic departments of the military, and intelligence out to Colorado. The Norway “Doomsday Seed Vault”.. And the elite bunkers built, all over the world.
And why were there so many Apocalyptic movies released in the past 10 years?
The threat of a massive earthquake and tsunami have been looming over the Pacific Northwest for decades.
Now, experts are taking it seriously. This summer the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) is conducting a large-scale drill to see if it’s ready for worst.
The test will simulate a 9.0 magnitude quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, followed by a tsunami that could create waves more than 50ft-high.
THE THREAT OF ‘THE BIG ONE’
Experts say an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is now overdue for a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced.
Worst-case scenarios show that more than 1,000 bridges in Oregon and Washington state could either collapse or be so damaged that they are unusable.
The main coastal highway, US Route 101, will suffer heavy damage from the shaking and from the tsunami.
Traffic on Interstate 5 — one of the most important thoroughfares in the nation — will likely have to be rerouted because of large cracks in the pavement.
Seattle, Portland and other urban areas could suffer considerable damage, such as the collapse of structures built before codes were updated to take into account a mega-quake.
Researchers say such an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is overdue a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced.
The last time the region faced a ‘Big One’ was in 1906 when San Andres unleashed an earthquake that killed roughly 3,000 people.
This summer’s drill, dubbed Cascadia Rising, will test to see how local and state emergency responders, Fema, and a number of military groups work together.

The simulation will run from June, and will use past events to help plan the future response.
In April, researchers speaking at the Seismological Society of America’s (SSA) Annual Meeting, in Reno, Nevada said plans for managing tsunami risk on the West Coast are still evolving.
Meanwhile, geologists are searching for evidence of past tsunamis in the region to help them refine their estimates of tsunami risk.
There is, for instance, the evidence for frequent and large earthquakes and tsunamis occurring within the past 2,000 years in parts of the Eastern Aleutian Islands.
There are signs that these earthquakes have spanned the boundary between the locked and creeping portions of the region’s megathrust fault.
Earthquakes in the area could cause significant tsunami effects across the Pacific, especially in Hawaii and California.
‘Despite the fact that we have learned a significant amount about the earthquake sources for tsunamis, there are gaps in our understanding of past tsunamis, especially prehistoric tsunamis,’ says Rick Wilson, a senior engineering geologist with the California Geological Survey.
‘If we can demonstrate when and where tsunamis occurred in the past, that information will give us a better understanding of the return periods in these areas, and that can go into the probabilistic analyses that help us understand our hazard and risk better.’
Wilson, who also serves as the science coordinator for the State of California Tsunami Preparedness and Hazard Mitigation Program, noted that more than 440,000 people have died worldwide since 1850 as a result of tsunamis.
A powerful earthquake thought to be as large as 9.2 magnitude ripped through the earth in 1700, along the 600 mile stretch of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, causing severe shaking and a massive tsunami. An animation from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center plotted the path of the tsunami as it traveled from the US to Japan.
