Understanding the Worst Case Scenario of the Next Cascadia Earthquake

(via) Terra Incognita asks:

“More than 300 years ago, the Pacific Northwest was rocked by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake. What would happen if a similar earthquake hit the region today?”

Interesting side note:

“Seismic waves race outwards from the epicentre at 5km per second and reach the coast before moving inland. This means that people living far enough inland will start seeing posts about the earthquake on social media seconds before they feel the shaking start.”
