“It is coming. it is a certainty […] more than ten-thousand will die,” says Fox news anchor Shepard Smith.
“Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast,” a FEMA official told Kathryn Schulz of the New Yorker. “When the next full-margin rupture happens, that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America,” Schulz wrote about an anticipated future mega-quake.
“The worst natural disaster in the history of America is coming […] if I lived right now in the Pacific Northwest I would be considering moving — seriously,” Fox newscaster Shepard Smith warned his audience before going on to explain how a “colossal earthquake and […] tsunami” will likely strike the Pacific Northwest in the not too distant future.
“They [scientists] are all in agreement, it is absolutely coming,” said Smith, “a wall of water […] up to a hundred feet high and up to seven-hundred feet across.
“Houses […] dump-trucks […] schools” will be washed away, “thousands and thousands will not escape.”
New Update 2015. A new report predicts that a mega-earthquake could kill an estimated 13,000 people and destroy a sizable portion of the Pacific Northwest. Even more disturbing? It’s overdue. The New Yorker reported that FEMA calculations show these types of earthquakes happen at regular intervals in this specific part of the world, roughly every 240 years. The last one was more than 300 years ago, in 1700, when a quake there sent a 600-foot wave of water all the way to Japan.
Michio Kaku, a physicist and professor at City College of New York, told Shepard Smith today that the troubling article does not overstate the danger. “The Cascadia fault is an earthquake waiting to happen,” Kaku stated. “We know it’s going to happen with an energy 30 times the maximum energy of the San Andreas fault.”
Kaku said Hollywood has “brainwashed” people into thinking that California is where the next massive earthquake will hit. He added that before the mega-quake actually hits, there is a compression wave that is detected by animals. “Animals start to act very strange. We’ve seen that happen before earthquakes,” Kaku said. “And then, a minute, two minutes later, boom!”
The massive quake, with a magnitude of up to 9.2, would last about four minutes, according to seismologists, with a wall of water following about 15 minutes later. Kaku said he’s concerned that many of the 70,000 residents in the potential “inundation zone” have very little knowledge about this risk. “It barely rates on the radar screen,” he said.
Shep asked Kaku whether he would live in the Pacific Northwest if he had children.
“I’d think twice,” he said, advising residents to educate their children on emergency preparedness and what to do in case of an earthquake.
These projections are based on a scenario that has the earthquake striking at 9:41 a.m. February 6. (The agency isn’t trying to predict the future or saying that the earthquake will definitely occur then, they just need a date to plan around.) The toll would be far higher on a warm day, when more people — often huge crowds of people — are at the beach or in the water.
An Earthquake in this region is LONG OVERDUE! If an earthquake of such a magnitude hits, some feel it would prompt the “worst natural disaster” in North American history. The earthquake in Japan, in 2011, was magnitude-9.0 and killed more than 15,000 people.
“Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast,” FEMA Region X Director Kenneth Murphy, said. Region X covers the Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska regions. –
“FEMA projects that nearly 13,000 people will die in the Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. Another 27,000 thousand will be injured, and the agency expects that it will need to provide shelter for 1,000,000 displaced people, and food and water for another 2,500,000.” (Link 1 below)
– FEMA Preparing For MONSTER Earthquake On Cascadia Subduction Zone.
1) Cascadia Fault Poised To Unleash Monster Earthquake, Inquisitr, July 16, 2015
“Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and Olympia, Salem and Eugene wiped out. Altogether about 7 million people and that’s not including tourists.”
“These massive 9.2 earthquakes […] happen at regular intervals […] on average, according to scientists, about every 240 years,” said Smith.
The segment, which was based on the New Yorker’s write-up, also featured top Astrophysicist Michio Kaku. Shockingly during the broadcast Kaku explained how the Cascadia Fault has already yielded evidence to “scientists” showing how “we could be long overdue for another big one.”
“In the inundation zone we have 70,000 that have almost no clue as to what could happen,” said Kaku. Unfortunatly Smith already pointed out that the massive tsunami would likely hit about “fifteen minutes” after the earthquake leaving no time for people to flee.
Kaku also offered some advice, saying, “I would think twice” about living in the Pacific Northwest.”
“In the lifetime of some of our viewers they may see Seattle and Portland destroyed,” warned Kaku.
In preparation for such a disaster “Oregon OEM is urging all Oregonians to participate in the Great Oregon ShakeOut earthquake drill on Oct. 15 at 10:15 a.m. It is part of the nation’s largest earthquake drill, and last year more than 390,000 Oregonians participated. Register athttp://shakeout.org/oregon/register/ and take steps to make your family safer.” — KTVZ 21
