The Earthquake That Will Devastate Seattle – The New Yorker

And by the geological clock…this bugger is way overdue. If any of you live, or are thinking about moving to the pacific northwest, this is an article you won’t want to skip. NOT to be “scared”, but rather “educated”.
It says “Seattle”, but, IMHO, it should say “The Pacific Northwest” because from up north all the way down into California, this is going to be a mess.
Another thing about this that isn’t really emphasized is the economic mess. Those aftershocks will, in all likelihood, be far worse than the short term mess, and those shocks will cross the country.
Hat tip to Kathryn Shulz (author) for making this interesting to read rather than the dry boring geo-speak babble that normally accompanies this stuff.
