Cascadia Megaquake Could be Stronger than Expected

Japan quake studies suggest harder jolt to NW possible.

Studies of last year's giant Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan suggest that shaking from a Cascadia megaquake could be stronger than expected along the coasts of Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, researchers reported Sunday at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.


VANCOUVER, B.C. — Scientists are still unraveling last year's giant Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and some of what they're finding doesn't bode well for the Pacific Northwest.

Detailed analyses of the way the Earth warped along the Japanese coast suggest that shaking from a Cascadia megaquake could be stronger than expected along the coasts of Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, researchers reported Sunday at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

"The Cascadia subduction zone can be seen as a mirror image of the Tohoku area," said John Anderson, of the University of Nevada.

Interesting article OP.....I'm not an enthusiast as you say...but I believe it is getting to that time/point for a big one to hit here in the States!

And as much as I hate to see it happen....we're over-due for a big shaking....IMHO!

Megaquake predicted for Pacific Northwest
Before the quake, all GPS stations in Japan were moving west, the same thing is happening at Cascadia.
