This is disturbing. It seems that the entire Pacific Northwest also is aware of the possible danger of an imminent earthquake. I was amazed when a company here in Kelowna in the entire of British Columbia was building earthquake proof buildings and we have had tremours here as well. I recently saw a documentary about earthquakes and preparedness that was very scary, especially for coastal towns and cities.

Not all earthquakes have the potential to generate a 10.0 earthquake, but this area is where subduction earthquakes occur and subduction quakes DO have the potential to generate 10.0 magnitude earthquakes. Anyone living on or near an area where one plate is moving under another faces the possibility of a 10.0 subduction earthquake.

Thanks Nancy. That's a pretty frightening thought considering Chile suffered so much damage in the last quake.

NOT good news, but as with any new science, probably (hopefully) not accurate!

Scary....between the big quakes that are over due to strike and the super volcanos that are overdue to blow, the Mayans may have a point about 2012.
