Surviving Cascadia

Understanding the True Risk… is Everything

We prepare for emergencies – or don’t – based on our perceived risk. The main purpose of this website is to help ensure you understand just how likely we are to experience a major earthquake in the PNW. Knowing will inspire. Inspiration will lead to action. Action will create the best possible outcome for you and your loved ones. We invite you to travel through the pages of this website. Be inspired.

Stories Told

Earthquakes are the greatest ghost stories ever told. ┬áDanger from the natural disasters listed to the right, give warning. We can see them coming from a particular direction, even if we can’t outrun them. Earthquakes are different.

Earthquakes are nowhere, then suddenly everywhere around you at once, unseen but for the destruction they cause. Ghosts.
