Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake information

This article does not exaggerate.
The risk of a major seismic event is significant, and we should be doing more to prepare. While we have reinforced our home (added a shear wall, extra supports, reinforcements, etc), the probability of buildings being rendered uninhabitable directly by the earthquake, or by subsequent fire(s), is significant. Coupled with the fact that we (as a community) will be on our own for weeks to months, unless we are prepared, we will suffer severely.
