— You Have Been Warned– THE BIG ONE: Experts Tell Us That A Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake And Tsunami Will Destroy Everything

A fault line in California is moving in part due to the recent earthquakes in the area. Scientists are now expecting “The Big One” to occur in their lifetimes, but they still don’t know exactly when or where the massive and devastating earthquake will strike.

At any moment, an earthquake of magnitude 6.7 or higher could vibrate through California, leading infrastructure to topple, the power to shut off, and buildings to collapse. The Big One is expected at any time now.

On Thursday, scientists released a study warning that the Garlock Fault, which runs through the Mojave Desert in southern California, has been moving for the first time on record, according to a report by Science Alert. The fault is capable of producing a magnitude 8 earthquake, though it’s currently moving at a slow, continuous pace. This is a process known as “creeping.”

Most people in the United States know just one fault line by name: the San Andreas, which runs nearly the length of California and is perpetually rumored to be on the verge of unleashing “the big one.” That rumor is misleading, no matter what the San Andreas ever does. Every fault line has an upper limit to its potency, determined by its length and width, and by how far it can slip. For the San Andreas, one of the most extensively studied and best understood fault lines in the world, that upper limit is roughly an 8.2—a powerful earthquake, but, because the Richter scale is logarithmic, only six per cent as strong as the 2011 event in Japan.

Just north of the San Andreas, however, lies another fault line. Known as the Cascadia subduction zone, it runs for seven hundred miles off the coast of the Pacific Northwest, beginning near Cape Mendocino, California, continuing along Oregon and Washington, and terminating around Vancouver Island, Canada. The “Cascadia” part of its name comes from the Cascade Range, a chain of volcanic mountains that follow the same course a hundred or so miles inland. The “subduction zone” part refers to a region of the planet where one tectonic plate is sliding underneath (subducting) another. Tectonic plates are those slabs of mantle and crust that, in their epochs-long drift, rearrange the earth’s continents and oceans. Most of the time, their movement is slow, harmless, and all but undetectable. Occasionally, at the borders where they meet, it is not.

Today, the city of Seattle is one of the epicenters of America’s thriving tech industry, but it was literally built on landfill. So when the shaking comes, the ground underneath everyone’s feet will literally liquify. At that point virtually every major structure will collapse and multitudes of people will die.


According to Oregon State University paleoseismologist Chris Goldfinger, the Cascadia Subduction Zone is capable of producing an earthquake that is “almost 30 times more energetic” than anything that the San Andreas Fault is capable of producing…

Everyone knows the Cascadia’s cousin in California: the San Andreas Fault. It gets all the scary glamor, with even a movie this year, “San Andreas,” dramatizing an apocalypse in the western U.S.

Truth is, the San Andreas is a lightweight compared with the Cascadia.

The Cascadia can deliver a quake that’s many times stronger — plus a tsunami.

“Cascadia can make an earthquake almost 30 times more energetic than the San Andreas to start with, and then it generates a tsunami at the same time, which the side-by-side motion of the San Andreas can’t do,” said Chris Goldfinger, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University.

Let’s talk about that potential tsunami. Goldfinger says that a massive quake could produce a giant wall of water 100 feet high that would destroy everything in sight…

The tsunami would bring water 20 to 80 – maybe even 100 – feet higher than today’s high tides. Most of the structures that have survived the killer quake but built too low will be smashed into by a devastating wall of water. And the next surge could be even higher, and the one after that higher still.

It won’t just be the water causing destruction, but everything it picks up. Goldfinger described what would happen all around and on the spit of land where CBN News interviewed him in the middle of Newport, Oregon’s Yaquina Bay, a few hundred yards from the Pacific.

“Then suddenly you’ve got a bay full of fishing boats, refrigerators, cars and everything else,” Goldfinger explained. “And it’s like a glacier of debris that’s just kind of sloshing back and forth.”

Seattle would be destroyed.

Tacoma would be gone.

Portland would essentially no longer exist.

We are talking about complete and utter devastation on a scale that has never been seen before in modern times.

At one point, the head of FEMA’s Region X was quoted by the New Yorker as saying that “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast”…

If the entire zone gives way at once, an event that seismologists call a full-margin rupture, the magnitude will be somewhere between 8.7 and 9.2. That’s the very big one.

…By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region will be unrecognizable. Kenneth Murphy, who directsFEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, says, “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”

In the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5 covers some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people.

If you live west of Interstate 5 right now, you better hope that such a disaster does not happen soon, because when it does take place you will probably die.

 

And in this article I have not even mentioned one of the most important seismic events in the Northwest that experts tell us will definitely happen someday.

Mt. Rainier has been described as “the most dangerous mountain in America”, and a full-blown eruption of that volcano would be far, far worse than the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.

Experts tell us that Mt. Rainier is capable of producing rivers of super-heated mud that are hundreds of feet high and that would travel at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. These “rivers of death” would kill everything that they encounter, and entire communities would be swallowed up in just moments. Today, approximately 150,000 people live on top of old Mt. Rainier mudflows, and someday those people will pay a very great price for being so foolish. There is a reason why I included an eruption of Mt. Rainier in my novel, and experts assure us that the volcano is a ticking time bomb which could go off at any moment.

We live at a time when seismic activity is rising all over the world, and this is particularly true along the Ring of Fire.

The entire west coast of the United States lies directly along the Ring of Fire, and unfortunately the “Big One” is likely to arrive a whole lot sooner than most people are anticipating.

Most Americans cannot even conceive of such a disaster because they have never seen anything like it. Even big budget Hollywood disaster movies don’t even come close to replicating what the real thing will be like.

The first sign that the Cascadia earthquake has begun will be a compressional wave, radiating outward from the fault line. Compressional waves are fast-moving, high-frequency waves, audible to dogs and certain other animals but experienced by humans only as a sudden jolt.They are not very harmful, but they are potentially very useful, since they travel fast enough to be detected by sensors thirty to ninety seconds ahead of other seismic waves.

That is enough time for earthquake early-warning systems, such as those in use throughout Japan, to automatically perform a variety of lifesaving functions: shutting down railways and power plants, opening elevators and firehouse doors, alerting hospitals to halt surgeries, and triggering alarms so that the general public can take cover. The Pacific Northwest has no early-warning system.

When the Cascadia earthquake begins, there will be, instead, a cacophony of barking dogs and a long, suspended, what-was-that moment before the surface waves arrive. Surface waves are slower, lower-frequency waves that move the ground both up and down and side to side: the shaking, starting in earnest.

Soon after that shaking begins, the electrical grid will fail, likely everywhere west of the Cascades and possibly well beyond. If it happens at night, the ensuing catastrophe will unfold in darkness. In theory, those who are at home when it hits should be safest; it is easy and relatively inexpensive to seismically safeguard a private dwelling. But, lulled into nonchalance by their seemingly benign environment, most people in the Pacific Northwest have not done so. That nonchalance will shatter instantly.

And those that don’t die from being crushed by falling buildings could end up dying from falling glass and debris. According to the head guy at FEMA’s headquarters in Bothell, there will be “three feet of broken glass” in downtown Seattle as a result of the earthquake…

“When the skyscrapers start swaying…well, a lot of them are designed to have their windows pop out,” said Matt Caesar at the region’s FEMA headquarters in Bothell, Washington.

“There’ll be three feet of broken glass on the roads underneath those buildings in downtown Seattle — three feet of glass. We don’t even see three feet of snow,” he stated.

So there won’t be any heroes running around like Dwayne Johnson pulling people out of collapsed buildings, because nobody will be able to travel through the mountains of glass and fallen debris.

    Ok….. So what do you expect us to do with this information? Turn the highways into parking lots as every tries to leave at once? This is just more of the hysterical USGS trying to validate their existence by keeping the hysteria going. IF THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT, THEN WHY NOT JUST ALLOW NATURE TO TAKE ITS COURSE AND STOP TRYING TO JACK US UP, as if it validates your work.

    I have been watching a 188 day earthquake cycle of a 7.0 or greater for the last 10 year’s and except for a couple of astronomical anomalies that either made them happen just before or just after that time frame it has been very accurate.The next 188 day cycle will be December 9th 2019 give or take about four days on either side of that date.The coming Epiphany blog has taken this info and run with it with a good graph of time lines and events of the 188 day cycle the last 10 years.
    We are waiting
    We are watching
    We will see

    If everything West of I-5 is going to be toast, an early warning system giving a couple of minutes warning is going to do little good. It would be better use of money to store up body bags and those cheap plastic coffins at a potentially accessible location. Such is going to happen mainly because protection from the Heavenly Father is being removed. So much for the tremendous amount of religion found in these areas. It will be to no avail simply because it did not and does not truly represent the Heavenly Father nor His Son, Jesus.

    What people do not read is about the 6th seal in which every mountain and island shall be moved from their places. This is a celestial event the entire earth shall reel from. Cascadia is nothing compared to the 6th seal event.

    We are entering into what is called a Grand Solar Minimum. This has not been seen by modern man and its all about the sun going to sleep.. The magnetic powers of the planet will be pulled apart. This is just like the biblical version. Like it or not we ARE entering into it.Just this year you will start to see major food price rise and what is know as “shrinkflation” (same price but smaller package) We did get through the last one…. BUT…. man new how to take care of themselves. Now we just have a buncha snowflake takers who need there safe place and I Pad… God knows how to flush the toilet and itsa coming… like it or not

    There’s nothing here to validate.Myself and several medical professionals drove from South Carolina to help the survivors of Katrina.Your “supposed “ father’s death and the situation at the hospitals is nothing but a sales pitch.Your claim of unattended bodies all over the place in the hospitals is pure fiction.By the day after the hurricane medical reinforcements mobilized and arrived from all over the country without any help from FEMA.There was approximately one nurse for every 10 patients and one physician for every 20 patients that included surgeons and ER specialist.. Your an embarrassment to those who came from all over to help.Why not try getting a real job instead of peddling things off of other people’s misery.
