Earth will ‘rip open like a zipper’ when overdue Vancouver Island quake strikes ?
When the next megathrust quake hits, residents on the west side of Vancouver Island will barely have 20 minutes to get to higher ground.

“Every year we hear the same thing, that, ‘Oh, the big waves are going to come, the big waves are going to come,’” Peters says as she looks out on the Pacific Ocean. “I’m not really too worried about it actually happening. We’re not ready for it, but in a sense we are. We seem to be on the ball when it comes to evacuating the place.”

“Nobody (will be) left behind,” says Peters. “All the elders, the kids, even the dogs are all taken out of here.”
On Jan. 26, 1700 at about 9 p.m., a magnitude 9 earthquake struck the Pacific coast, causing violent shaking for minutes that scientists believe was felt as far away as the Manitoba border. The shaking was followed almost immediately by a tsunami that legend and scientists say sucked everybody and everything along the outer coast into the ocean.

Yes, it will.

The PNW is due for a MONSTER quake which will in fact rip open the Earth. Not the entire Earth, but many miles.

And then the skyscrapers come tumbling down, the lights go out, the screaming starts, and the ocean washes in...

Little Vancouver Island has troubles ahead, for certain.

A Magnitude 9.0 quake, in Normal Mode faulting, tends to have a surface manifestation of about 309.03 km with a displacement of 16.60 meters, average.

to work the math on this yourself, see "New Empirical Relationships among Magnitude, Rupture Length, Rupture Width, Rupture Area, and Surface Displacement" Wells - Coppersmith (1994)

It's a fact, dude.
You can't logically dispute anything I said.
I'm calm but I understand the coiled power of the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

There hasn't been a megaquake in your area in your lifetime, so it won't happen? Is that what you're saying?

And what does snow have to do with it??

There have been many earthquakes in the past but the island is still here.
