***************CASCADIA EARTHQUAKE IMMINENT!!!! **************
[link to earthquake.usgs.gov]


Two earthquakes, a 4.6, and a 4.9 occurred on 3/15 and 3/13 on the far western front of the Juan De Fuca plate.

Gravitional pull from Moon will be intensifying during the next few weeks as the Moon passes nearly directly overhead of the North American continent for the next few weeks during the mid-noon to late afternoon.

Tidal levels are also increasing in the next few weeks along the Oregon, Washington, and Northern California coasts.


These combined effects give a high likelihood of a major event in the next few weeks, but possibly beginning as soon as TOMORROW.

As many of you know, the Cascadia Subduction Zone is one of the most dangerous fault lines on the earth, often remaining quiet for several hundred years before rupturing in mega-earthquakes, often causing mega-tsunamis and possible Volcanic activity.

There are over 20 Volcanoes that are directly over the Cascadia Subduction zone.

The last major Earthquake in the region was a 9.0+ event sometime in the year 1700, 310 years ago, which is well within the historical timeframe for a high EQ risk at the present.


Additional Earthquakes in the previous decade, and most importantly in the previous few months, seem to indicate that the Planet is experiencing extreme gravitational torquing experienced only every few hundred years at the LEAST. We are living in very active geologic times, and the EQ risk for the Cascadia region should not be ignored.

+1 - I am glad more people are noticing this. The severity of a quake in this zone could be astronomical. Please if you live in this area do NOT dismiss this warning.

No as OP stated Imminent could be days, weeks, months, or even years but be assured it will happen and soon.

Sorcha will say its Russia's Earthquake Machine.


That Bitch. Russia did Haiti and Chile and has been blaming it on America ALL ALONG.

Re: ***************CASCADIA EARTHQUAKE IMMINENT!!!! **************
Well, to begin with, the MORE earthquakes Juan has, the LESS likely we are to experience a major event. The subducting plate has been locked for months now, and THAT should be what's of concern, not sub-5 earthquakes happening in a zone that, as a rule, experiences HUNDREDS of small earthquakes every month.

Also, the HISTORICAL median time between megathrust quakes in this region is FIVE hundred years. Although, to be fair, they can realistically occur as close together as two hundred, OR as far apart as a THOUSAND years.

And please keep in mind, while an interplate quake rather than a megathrust quake, The M8.1 Queen Charlotte Island Earthquake of August 22, 1949 was enough to relieve a LOT of tectonic pressure, making that time estimate again FAR more variable than not.

Understand, I'm not knocking your theory per se, and there WILL be another massive megathrust event here. It's not a matter of IF, but when. I'm merely pointing out that making an assertion that such a quake is IMMINENT is disingenuous, to say the least. You could very well be correct, but your THEORY of why that is the case bears little merit. Indeed, the very SILENCE of subduction zones is always a stronger indication of impending upheaval than actually SPAWNING pressure-relieving quakes in the 3.5 - 6.5 magnitude.

I agree that we'll definitely see your quake, and I won't completely discard your timeframe, simply because there's no way to know one way or another... but I also won't hold my breath, because your theory of WHY simply doesn't merit it.

Cheers!

Pin this.

I believe even if an earthquake isn't imminent in the next week, it's still very likely to happen very soon, and people should always be prepared.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 690458



I'm not saying the evidence ISN'T there... in fact, I've actually provided a more SOLID foundation of evidence to go by. And all of these same elements have been in play numerous times over the past six months or so that the plates have been locked. In fact, feel free to Google Courtenay, BC+Flooding+2010 and you'll see an even STRONGER confluence of events which could have helped to kickstart Cascadia.

I'm not disputing the fact of an eventual massive quake here, I'm CONFIRMING the eventuality. What I DO take exception to is the insinuation that we should currently be sticking our heads between our legs to kis our asses goodbye. The theory evinced by the OP, while it contains some fact, gives absolutely NO information indicative of any timeline, and no way to discern that a quake is in any way, as we percieve time, imminent On a geological scale? Certainly. On a human scale? Possibly... but there's nothing currently that says so.

Mainly all the earthquakes have been on the southern and the western part of the Juan de Fuca plate. Shouldn't this cause more stress on the northern part (east of Seattle)because the plate wants to slide beneath the North American plate and the southern is, and the northern is locked? I live about 40 miles north and I would rather have the earthquake tomorrow than in a thousand years. It would be MASSIVE! compared to todays. This would actually cause a southern to northern direction of the quake.
