“everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast”…

Preparations for a 9.0 earthquake and tsunami in the Cascadia subduction zone are being made by FEMA.

Michael Snyder of IWB reports that FEMA will be holding massive drills involving –

“50 counties, plus major cities, tribal nations, state and federal agencies, private sector businesses, and non-governmental organizations across three states – Washington, Oregon, and Idaho – will be participating”.

The drills are said to take place on 7th June codenamed “Cascadia Rising”. The U.S Northern Command will also be holding 5 exercises simultaneously.

Clearly, the threat is real and is being taken very seriously. With weather records being broken almost every month and the increase in earthquakes and volcano activity across the globe, it would seem that humanity is experiencing warnings from mother nature and the earth that something is brewing beneath us.

Should the Cascadia subduction zone split, it is estimated to displace a million people from North California to southern Canada. The destruction would be on levels never seen before by mankind. The U.S west coast would see buildings reduced to rubble and a Tsunami reaching several dozens of meters high.

People began searching for information on the San Andrea’s fault following the popular movie San Andreas. Search terms on Google were said to have increased by 300% during the 2 months following its release. However, the Cascadia subduction zone is a much more deadly and larger threat to the east U.S coast. Said to be around 700 miles long, it reaches as far as Vancouver Island, all the way down to northern California.

From a CNNreport:

“In fact, “the Cascadia” already has made history, causing the largest earthquake in the continental United States on January 26, 1700. That’s when the Cascadia unleashed one of the world’s biggest quakes, causing a tsunami so big that it rampaged across the Pacific and damaged coastal villages in Japan.”

Cascadia has the potential to be almost 30 times more energetic than anything the San Andreas fault could ever produce.

Should Cascadia give way, the resulting tsunami would make the 2011 Japan one look like a ripple in a small fishpond. It would follow an earthquake between 8.7 – 9.2 in magnitude. In fact, an article in the New Yorker quoted the head of the FEMA division that oversees Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska as saying that,

“everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast”…

The planet’s crust is clearly showing signs of instability and with the Ring of Fire increasing in earthquake intensity – some scientists are very concerned that the ‘Big One’ being around the corner. Just last week, there were swarms of earthquakes reported directly underneath Mt. Rainier, Mr. Hood and Mt. St. Helens.

Not everyone is aware of the dangers that lay beneath us and are more than happy to remain ignorant of the truth. It is high time (in our opinion) that people in America woke up and began taking these warnings seriously. This could all happen within our lifetime and America will be permanently restructured for generations to come, should Cascadia decide to rupture.

Please share this with your friends and family as soon as you can. It may be the alarm that awakes the sleeping.
