“Researchers at Oregon State University have just concluded there is a one in three chance that a major earthquake will strike the Pacific Northwest coast within the next 50 years. There is a 10 to 15 per cent chance of a mega-earthquake hitting the northern segment of the Cascadia Subduction Zone at some point during the next 50 years. The northern segment of the Cascadia Subduction Zone covers an area from Vancouver Island, B.C. to Seaside, Ore.”
