Understanding the True Risk

…is Everything

Earthquakes are the greatest ghost stories ever told.  

Danger from most natural disasters give warning. We can see them coming from a particular direction, even if we can’t outrun them.

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

History shows us another Cascadia Subduction Zone Megathrust earthquake will strike the Pacific Northwest. We don’t know when, but we know we can’t outrun it when the time comes.

We prepare for all types of 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. 37% risk in the next 50 years is not the whole story. The data tells a very different story; one of ghosts on our horizon.

It is my hope that this information will inspire, that inspiration will lead to action, that action will create the best possible outcome for you and your loved ones.
