HOW TRUE IS IT? : FEMA predicts major earthquake on 6th Feb. 2016

There are rumors circulating about the big earthquake predicted by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that will happen on February 6, 2016 at 9:41 am. Is it true?

The rumor spread after the New Yorker magazine wrote an article about the threat of a catastrophic earthquake devastating the entire Pacific NW due a rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone in July 2015. The Cascadia subduction zone runs some 700 miles from northern California to Vancouver.

The article entitled "The Really Big One: An earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest. The question is when" created lots of buzz and interest.

Soon after, rumors claimed that a mega-earthquake with a magnitude of up to 9.2 will occur on Feb. 6, 2016 and would last for four minutes killing an estimated 13,000 people and destroying a sizable portion of the Pacific Northwest.

The rumors accelerated after FEMA blogged quoting New Yorker magazine with heading "The “Big One” in the Pacific Northwest: Taking conversation to action." FEMA is the United States Official website of the Department of Homeland Security. . .
[link to www.disaster-report.com]

Here is info from the article regarding the date,

As for casualties: the figures I cited earlier—twenty-seven thousand injured, almost thirteen thousand dead—are based on the agency’s official planning scenario, which has the earthquake striking at 9:41 A.M. on February 6th. If, instead, it strikes in the summer, when the beaches are full, those numbers could be off by a horrifying margin.
[link to www.newyorker.com]

It is being stated that these projections are based on a scenario that has the earthquake striking at 9:41 a.m. February 6. (The agency isn't trying to predict the future or saying that the earthquake will definitely occur then, they just need a date to plan around.

I'm not posting because I necessarily believe this will happen on this date but
find the timing and info very interesting. . .
 Quoting: FireFleye


Interesting.....I understand a specific time, and maybe saying some time in the winter on a weekday for projections or something...But why an actual, very specific, date\?
 Quoting: Vegainzzz


I agree! The fact that they identify a specific date and time feels a bit ominous. Hard to predict a quake so precisely, but it does feel like they know something is coming. And I can't help but think about the "sonic boom" stuff going on recently and how it might be related.

Violent Impact That Created Moon Mixed Lunar and Earth Rocks
The colossal impact that created the moon may have spawned the cosmic mashup between the rocks that ultimately became Earth and its lunar neighbor, researchers say.

Previous research suggested that about 100 million years after the solar system formed 4.6 billion years ago, the newborn Earth was hit by a Mars-size rock named Theia, named after the mother of the moon in Greek myth. Debris from the collision later coalesced into the moon.

Obama Orders More Earthquake Resilience for Gov't Buildings
Feb 2, 2016, 1:56 PM ET

President Barack Obama has ordered all new or renovated federal buildings to be equipped with the latest protections against earthquakes.

Obama signed an executive order on Tuesday creating a Federal Earthquake Risk Management Standard. The White House says the standard will improve federal buildings' resilience to earthquakes, making them safer and lowering the costs for recovering from a quake.

Obama's order said that agencies constructing or updating federal buildings must ensure they're built with earthquake-resistant designs that meet the latest building codes. The White House said that following those codes is one of the best ways to save the lives of people living in a building.

The White House is also seeking to make more progress in deploying an early earthquake warning system along the West Coast. Federal agencies are exploring ways to speed up the permitting process for new seismic monitoring stations. . .

Governments and earthquake experts intensify planning for the ‘Really Big One’


A public-private campaign to improve America’s resilience to future earthquakes, like the “Really Big One” that’s expected to hit the Pacific Northwest someday, received a multimillion-dollar boost today.

The new initiatives are aimed at minimizing the multibillion-dollar impact of large-scale seismic shocks: They range from a White House drive to upgrade federal facilities throughout the country, to a $100,000 grant from Puget Sound Energy Foundation to install seismometers throughout Washington state.

“We do need to make sure, for the next ‘Big One,’ no matter what it is … that a natural phenomenon doesn’t become a human tragedy,” Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who grew up in Seattle, said during today’s webcast of the White House Earthquake Resilience Summit.

California Building Standards Commission
History of code changes 1905 to present:
[link to www.bsc.ca.gov]

About the California Building Codes & Earthquakes
On February 9, 1971 an earthquake hit the San Fernando Valley, just north of Los Angeles. It registered a 6.4 on the Richter scale, but had a seismic moment of 6.7, and did tremendous damage to the area. 58 people were killed and 2,543 were suffered injuries. Two major hospitals were destroyed and four freeways and overpasses collapsed. The State of California decided after that earthquake to make significant enhancements to its building codes pertaining to earthquakes. In Los Angeles, the Sylmar Quake led to the passage of an ordinance that required retrofitting of more than 8,000 unreinforced masonry buildings with the greatest risk of collapse.
