For millennia, the Cascade Mountains have stood watch over the
Pacific Northwest. Millions of people, attracted by their grandeur,
have settled in their shadows. But the slumber of these majestic
sentinels is a fitful one and geologists are monitoring their ominous
rumblings. Could what they are hearing be a muted warning? The
Cascades are actually a chain of volcanoes part of the infamous Ring
of Fire that encircles the Pacific Rim. When Mt. St. Helen's erupted,
the Pacific Northwest experienced first hand the staggering power
that loomed over them...could it happen again? Journey with us to the
Philippines, Japan and Mexico to discover how other people have
survived and suffered alongside their volatile neighbors. As our own
mountains rumble and growl from deep within, now is the time to ask:
what will we do when our Sleeping Giants Wake? The Cascades are
actually a chain of volcanoes part of the infamous Ring of Fire that
encircles the Pacific Rim. When Mt. St. Helen's erupted, the Pacific
Northwest experienced first hand the staggering power that loomed
over them...could it happen again? KSPS exists to improve the quality

Understanding Cascadia Turbidites.mov

https://youtu.be/lRVdpJBO1Ww   [4:48 minutes]

Published on Dec 4, 2014
On the continental shelf and slope off the US Pacific Northwest and Western Canada coast is an intricate system of canyons and channels carved by outwash flows over many 1000s of years. The upper reaches of these canyons slowly accumulate sediment. Big earthquakes shake this material loose and it runs down the slope as a turbidity current. Deposits left behind are dated and fix a 12,000 year long history of Cascadia earthquakes.
This movie shows physics based simulations of turbidity currents.

Richard Hammond reveals how engineers made one of the longest bridges in the world earthquake-proof - . Building a structure almost 3 kilometres long in water 65 metres deep was almost the least of the engineering challenges of bridging the Gulf of Corinth in Greece. The construction would cross one of the most active seismic fault lines in Europe. Defying disaster called for solutions inspired by fragrant Indian incense, the ring-pull in a soda can, a toboggan, a hammock, and some shiny steel chimneys.

MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE - Most Powerful Earthquakes

MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE - Most Powerful Earthquakes
https://youtu.be/QON-DcF67iE    [10:32 minutes]

Published on May 22, 2018
Amazing earthquake video.  A few powerful earthquakes caught on camera.  Minor, Moderate to Major Magnitude scale seismic [s] waves making the ground move like water.

When an earthquake first starts you will have no idea about its size [Magnitude and please stop using the Richter Scale, that is so last century.], about how long it will last, its magnitude or if there are a series of foreshocks or aftershocks.  Aftershocks can go on for years.  An earthquake can immediately knock you to the ground or throw you out of bed.  Try not to land on your head !  Expect nausea, motion sickness [like being airsick or seasick].  Have a bag handy where you can throw up.

Assuming the best, get down on your hands and knees.  Dive under something and cover and protect your head.  If it is a minor or moderate hide under a table for safety during an earthquake.

These are some of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded, although we did see the video of the devastation caused by the USGS Video Magnitude 9.2: The 1964 Great Alaska Earthquake  [4:04 minutes].

Major ‎: ‎7 - 7.9 Moderate ‎: ‎5 - 5.9 Minor ‎: ‎3 -3.9 ‎Magnitude earthquake strength rating system. Devastating earthquake power. Strongest earthquakes in history.  NOPE ! - Not even close.

The 1,130 km stretch of coastline from Vancouver, Canada to Mendocino, California, harbours an underwater threat just over 110km offshore - the seismic fault, Cascadia. Places like Japan, Chile and North America's Pacific Northwest all fall in what's known as subduction zones - ie, where one tectonic plate dives under another. The potential seismic activity from one of these plates 'popping' from on top of the other equates to an entire region affected by earthquake symptoms. The Cascadia Initiative (CI) is a years-long project that has been developed to study the effects of the fault and the two plates responsible for the action: Juan de Fuca and Gorda. From the data collected, it is confirmed that the Cascadia will only cause large magnitude earthquakes, ranging between every 300 to 500 years. The last noted eruption of the Cascadia was in the 1700s, making Western Canada and the US Pacific Northwest overdue for the next quake. But alongside the shaking, the movement of the sea floor is also set to generate a tsunami wave that will reach Northwestern shores within minutes of the explosion. Impact studies are under way at Oregon State University, where civil engineer Daniel Cox utilises a wave laboratory to gauge the effect of different sized tsunamis. Replicas of towns based on actual layouts of coastal cities that could be affected by a Cascadia-triggered tsunami are used to collect data that is then input into a computer, simulating potential situations and scanning for the worst areas of damage. The results, even on a small scale, are terrifying, and the fear doesn't lie only in the force of the tsunami waves, but also in the projectiles that get swept up in it, including vehicles or temporary buildings that could crash and, ultimately, obliterate permanent structures. With knowledge of the mass panic caused during evacuation due to natural disasters, even this facet of the event has been mapped out by experts at Oregon State. Combining elements of how the water moves onto land and factoring in human behaviour leads to the conclusion that most people are still unaware of how to react should an event of this large scale arise. How likely is it that there will be a 9.0 magnitude earthquake on the Pacific Northwest within the next 50 years? "Somewhere within one in seven chance within the next 50 years," says Daniel Cox. "These odds are way too high for us to accept. There's too many lives at risk. We have to come up with some better ideas." - Subscribe to our channel:  http://aje.io/AJSubscribe
