‘Houses… dump-trucks… schools will be washed away,’ famous newscaster claims
A poll taken back in 2015 reveals that 56% of those polled believe a destructive megaquake-tsunami-combo can occur at virtually anytime in the Pacific Northwest.
Out of the 8,845 people that took the poll, 2,947 responded “yes.” The data acknowledges that pollees feel that a megaquake and tsunami could strike the region at any time.
Former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith warned on-air in 2015 after reading a write-up that claims the Cascadia Subduction Zone could give way at one point prompting a series of large earthquakes followed by massive tsunami waves hundreds of feet in height that ‘the big one’ is coming.
“The worst natural disaster in the history of America is coming… if I lived right now in the Pacific Northwest I would be considering moving,” Smith told viewers.
Houses, dump-trucks, and schools will be washed away, according to Smith. “Altogether about 7 million people…”
Theoretical Physicist Michio Kaku also appeared on the broadcast and admitted that the Cascadia Fault is an earthquake waiting to happen.
“We know it’s going to happen with an energy that’s thirty times that of the San Andreas Fault,” he said. “Hollywood has us brainwashed to believe that the big one would be in California. No. The Cascadia Fault would pack thirty times the energy of that which the San Andreas Fault could muster.”
The famous professor of theoretical physics pointed out in the same 2015 Fox News segment that 70,000 people that live in the inundation zone should consider moving out before the looming disaster actually strikes. Kaku feels that residents should “think twice” before living in the area.
The danger comes because a tsunami would take 15 minutes to reach the West Coast following an earthquake.
A story out of the New Yorker points out how big of an area would be impacted by such an event.
“In the Pacific Northwest, the area of impact will cover some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people,” the piece explains. “When the next full-margin rupture happens, that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America, outside of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, which killed upward of a hundred thousand people.”
Tsunami waves will swamp Washington coast, Seattle, subduction zone quake simulation shows
Scientists from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources warn the Cascadia subduction zone is long overdue for an earthquake and have alerted residents to prepare for what may become.
Washington Geological survey hazard geologists have created a simulation that shows a tsunami wave amplitude simulation for Washington State based on a hypothetical magnitude 9.0 earthquake (L1) scenario on the Cascadia subduction zone and the results aren’t good.
Astonishingly, the simulation reveals that the City of Seattle would be struck by crippling tsunami waves two hours and 20 minutes after an earthquake.
“There is no earthquake season,” DNR Chief Geologist Corina Allen told Q13 FOX. “It could happen today, it could happen tomorrow or 50 years from now.”
The warning from DNR scientists dovetails with information a Department of the Interior insider named Becca provided when she called into The Shepard Ambellas Show in mid-August.
The department insider revealed that DoD internal has designated climate change as a threat to its operations and infrastructure and warned that something may be fast approaching.
