Time to dust off Les Nessman’s disaster plan and get out the word on those Godless Erfquakes.

So, this kinda makes me wonder if these earthquakes keep happening, and let’s say on a big scale where a lot of people die like in Haiti (just supposing), would Obama send $100 MILLION to EACH?

Haiti and Guatemala share the same tectonic plate. It makes a lot of sense.

Unless you plan to learn to fly a light airplane through the middle of a collapsing building, there’s not much to learn from “2012”.

Much obliged. Between the opening of "For Your Eyes Only" where Bond flies a helicopter through a warehouse and the beginning of "Octopussy" where he flies that little plane sideways through the airplane hangar while they're frantically closing the doors, I'm qualified. :-)

It is a screencap of parameters I set in Earthquake3D, which is available at wolton.net/quake. Earthquake3D is a nice little program, worth checking out. I downloaded it last week and have very impressed by it.

While it is good to keep an eye on that sleeping giant, I don't believe you have anything to worry about.

Yellowstone has been far more active as of late and nothing has come of it.

Like I said though, it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on it.

The Cascadia Subduction Zone spits out a major quake every three hundred years or so. The last one was in 1700 and resulted in a massive tsunami that wreaked havoc in Japan.

Let’s see: 1700 + 300 = ...? I notice from that graphic that the west coast of the U.S. is about the only part of the Pacific Plate that hasn’t wiggled or coughed in the past week. Of course, the San Andreas has - as usual - a zillion or so minor (1.0-3.0) quakes every week.

Still, all in all, I don’t think I want to visit the Oregon beaches for awhile. Besides, they might visit ME!
