Not like ten miles north.. I figure it is about 200 air miles from me, and I’m about 32 miles SE of Seattle...

Didn’t feel it, but TV news is reporting that some people in the area did.

Let’s hope this ain’t part of the big kahuna... looks like this was the main Cascadia fault that we luv so much...

Went through a 6.7, IIRC, in late 60’s or early 70’s.

40+ people died, mostly from heart attacks.

A 6.7 - not trifle.

Indeed.....I used to live in the NW, around Portland. The thought of a Cascadia megathrust earthquake is not a pleasant one.

Please refer to the pic I posted upthread.

Right. Try about a third of the way to Alaska. Almost unpopulated at northern tip of Vancouver Island.

I’m 30 mi. south of Seattle. Felt nothing.

That sucker was close to the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Too close. I hope to God this wasn’t a foreshock. That sucker lets go, and you can count on massive damage throughout Western Washington.

(Those longshoremen in Longview would have to worry about their contracts if a tsunami washes their thug butts out to sea.)

Anyone know what percentage of the time quakes like this are foreshocks.

Actually, it kinda depends.

At the places that the fault run N/S off the coast of Washington state, it’s about 50 miles out from the coast.

And most people who live in Western Washington live on the east side of Puget sound, the Olympic peninsula adds another 60 miles or so distance to the main fault.

So being 100 miles away from the fault is probably a good thing. Whether there was huge damage here would probably depend on how big the quake was, how much linear length of the fault ruptured, and what was the specific ground motions involved.

I went to grad school three years in Victoria then transferred. Is a very pleasant place and winter fairly mild. However, I don’t want to live anyplace now where homo marriage is legal and Christians are persecuted for their beliefs.

We of course didn’t feel anything either to the east of you but the 2001 Nisqually earthquake was a different matter! Even cracked my driveway way over here.

I have seen a map of the Pacific Ring of Fire that showed that the only location on that ring not to have had a Mega quake in the last 50 years is the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The last one was in 1700 which was between a 9 and 10 on the scale.

Ugh. I’ve lived in California all of a month. Now I read this: Studies of past earthquake traces on both the northern San Andreas Fault and the southern Cascadia subduction zone indicate a correlation in time which may be evidence that quakes on the Cascadia subduction zone may have triggered most of the major quakes on the northern San Andreas during at least the past 3,000 years or so.

We did a Seattle/Vancouver/Victoria vacation about 10 years ago....we also went into some islands in that area...forget the name now...beautiful place.

Let’s hope this isn’t a prelude to something bigger, not that a 6.7 isn’t big...it is. Hopefully no tsunamis are generated.

Almost unpopulated at northern tip of Vancouver Island.

You said it. I ventured out there to see the Pacific Rim park one time thinking it was just a quick drive from Victoria. Like idiot tourists, we headed out with 2 small children and no provisions thinking we'd stop at restaurants there and back. Ha! When we finally got there after traveling logging roads for a long time, we found a small town - more like a village - and only one sort-of restaurant, which was closed. We asked a local resident if we could buy some bread, lunchmeat and water. They sent us to an out-of-season hunting lodge to track down a woman who made breakfast and dinner for the hunters in-season. We had potato soup and ham sandwiches while sitting on her couch. We almost had to spend the night with her because it was going to be dark soon and she was afraid we'd get lost on the logging roads. It was a trip to remember.

Looks like the clockwise movement around the Ring of Fire will be complete soon, Chile, New Zealand, Japan, Vancouver....San Francisco/Los Angeles you’re next.

I’m off to Wal-Mart to get 100 cans of Vienna sausages, candles and 24 cases of Fiji water.

I’ll see if they carry Honda generators.
