Scenario of a 7 mw magnitude earthquake in Seattle shows a possible 30.000 landslides are possible.

The researchers ran two different scenarios for the landslides associated with a Seattle earthquake. In the first they assumed that the earthquake occurred when conditions were dry. In this case the earthquake generated just 4,977 landslides covering a source area of about 0.2 square kilometres. On the other hand, when the scenario was run for saturated conditions in this case they generated 30,000 landslides covering 1.9 square kilometres in the city. It has long been hypothesised that antecedent weather conditions play a strong role in determining coseismic landslide distributions this study supports that view. Fortunately, the extreme ends of the spectrum represented by these scenarios are unlikely the probability is that the earthquake would occur when groundwater levels are somewhere between the two.

I know. The least landslides that could happen in dry weather is over 4 thousand for a 7 mag. It doesnt bare thinking about.
