Disaster in Seattle Waiting to Happen

February 18, 2013 The Pacific Ocean Ring of Fire: The “Ring of Fire” earthquake map is shown above. Over 80% of the worlds major earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis occur on the Ring of Fire. Subduction fault zones are also shown. These zones are where one tectonic plate dives under (subducts) another major plate of the earth’s crust. The “Japan Trench” is where the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami occurred, while the “Java Trench” is where the December 26, 2004 quake and tsunami took place that killed over 200,000 people (mainly from the tsunami). The blue stars mark major earthquakes that have occurred in the last 100 years. Also of note is the black arrow in the upper right. This region, along the Northern California, Oregon and Washington State borders has not experienced a major quake in the last 100 years. Seattle is in grave danger of a major earthquake, tsunami and the eruption of Mount Rainier. These three events could occur simultaneously.  When and where ever the next mega-quake hits, odds are it will be somewhere along one of the major subduction zones on the Ring of Fire.
