"Mega-Disaster Predicted"

The New Yorker is scaring the daylights out of West Coast readers this week with their terrifying story, "The Really Big One."

The subtitle? "An earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest. The question is when."

According to seismologists: "The next full-margin rupture of the Cascadia subduction zone will spell the worst natural disaster in the history of the continent."

While everyone's heard of the San Andreas fault line (capable of a powerful 8.2), few have ever heard of the Cascadia subduction zone.

If San Andreas = the "Big One"
The Cascadia subduction zone = Mega-Quake Plus

Plus what, you ask?

Because of its size and location (700 miles long and off the coast of the Pacific Northwest) and the fact that  it's a subduction fault line  (with one tectonic plate sliding underneath another), an 8.7 - 9.2 mega-quake is possible.

Oh, and the Plus? The "seven-hundred mile liquid wall that will reach the Northwest coast, on average, fifteen minutes after the earthquake begins," says The New Yorker.

"By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region (from Northern California to Canada) will be unrecognizable."

So when will all this happen? Seismolegists contend this fault line rips roughly every 240 years (give or take). The last one happened 300 years ago. That puts us 60 years over due.

A wise man once said: "The Bible predicts a wide variety of cosmic and natural events will occur to signal the end times. Great earthquakes are only one of the many 'birthpains' we should expect." -- Andrew Hill, Ph.D

"Then there came flashes of lightening, rumbling peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake." Revelation 16:18
