Oregon (NW) Earthquake Zone (Cascadia Subduction Zone)

Apparently, Oregonians are long over due for a major earthquake…the last big one, according to studies, was in January 26, 1700 (I know…don’t ask me). The Cascadia Subduction Zone is the banging culprit.

“The troublesome area, about 50 miles off the coast of Oregon and Washington, is known as the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a 600-mile expanse stretching from Northern California to British Columbia.”

State reports underscore his point, documenting sweeping seismic vulnerabilities. For example:

-More than half of Oregon K-12 schools are at high risk of collapse in a strong quake.

-An estimated 1,000 bridges along Oregon highways may fail in a powerful quake.

-Nearly a dozen coastal communities are within tsunami inundation zones. Some neighborhoods have no easy escape routes to high ground.   Statesman Journal
