CrownVic95 Posted July 26, 2015 Author Share Posted July 26, 2015 Towns along the fault line, if a quake hits, will rock and roll; But, the big buildings are earth quake proof, so they say.Most of the old brick buildings are long gone. Very little room for more buildings in Seattle or Portland for that matter.They continuely tear down the old and build new taller buildings. I don't believe Seattle & Portland will be toast. There has been a lot of talk over the years about yellowstone taking out 5 or 6 states should it blow. The last million years has given our world much to worry about if Political-Science is correct. If its not huge space rocks then its' the sun shooting cosmic blasts at us. I think you are correct it is more political then real. China has invested heavily in the N.W. Now which political party did they join. The World War 3 party. Not much safety left to enjoy anywhere. I received 17 windows up-dates last tues. Maybe part of windows 10 ??? ??? Now that is something to worry about. Apparently this story has been out there for years, but I just never heard it before. Never got the media headline that it did just a few days ago. At least not to my knowledge. Yes, I think Portland and Seattle will weather it OK. Some earthquake damage, but little to no tsunami. But Portland and Seattle are not my focus. I really would like to be on the coast. I mean, like this.... http://olympic.craigslist.org/apa/5138292394.html But the tsunami from the one they're saying is inevitable would wipe out the coast. So one day you're enjoying the good life and the next, you're homeless with all your belongings destroyed and perhaps no way to escape the devastated area. Followed by weeks or months of near complete isolation with no home, no power and no new supply of food or anything else if ground transportation links are destroyed. I don't know, I guess maybe they'd send rescue boats if there was no ground access. But talk about losing everything. Even if the risk within my lifetime were know-ably (which it isn't) tiny, it's hard for me to truly envision going forward with that plan. Maybe it's time for me to look at Maine. I really do miss the 4 seasons I grew up with. :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
