Tsunamis are rare, but dangerous events. Scientists and technical experts agree that areas around Greater Victoria are not seriously threatened by tsunamis. (source: PEP website)[/indent]http://www.victoria.ca/cityhall/pdfs/departments_veptsn_brchr.pdf

This is no longer credible information as the experts have admitted that they were completely wrong about Japan, and have just now gone right back to the drawing board regarding what is possible. For instance, it is possible that Vancouver Island could drop, just as the coast of Japan did, and this alone will change the equation. I do agree that Victoria is to some extent protected but it all depends on the size of this event when it happens. We could see these theories go out the window just as they did in Japan.

There was:
An earthquake struck off the west side of Vancouver Island early Thursday morning, the second temblor to hit the area in less than a week.

However, the U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 4.0 quake was unlikely to do any damage and there are no reports of the earthquake being felt.

"This is likely an aftershock of the magnitude 6.3 earthquake of Friday, Sept. 9. There are no reports of damage, and none would be expected," said a statement from the USGS.

The quake struck at 4:02 a.m. ET, 91 kilometres west-southwest of Gold River, B.C. at a depth of 25 kilometres beneath the Earth's crust.

It was one of six quakes that struck between midnight and just after 4 a.m. along the Pacific Coast, from Baja, Mexico up to Alaska.

On Sept. 9, a more powerful magnitude 6.3 quake struck in the same location off Vancouver Island. That temblor was felt across southwest B.C. and Vancouver Island, in the city of Vancouver and as far away as Kelowna. It spawned more than 100 aftershocks, ranging from magnitude 4.9 down to as low as magnitude 1.

That quake was the most powerful to hit the area since Nov. 2, 2004 when a magnitude 6.6 quake occurred.

Tremor swarms occur about every 14 months along the cascadia fault, the last one ended in September of last year, the next is due soon. Scientists believe that these swarms may be the catalyst that sets off the big one, as in a swarm begins and then it all lets go. So, if it's going to be this year, it could be anytime now and those quakes running right up the coast of North America could be precurser quakes, hard to say.

The ETS (episodic tremor and slip)? Is that what you're talking about? Some earthquake blogger said it may have started sooner than normal (august). I remember posting it somewhere a few weeks ago, but i don't know how much credibility that person warrants. Still interesting.

I am not a fear seeking individual, but I have been thinking of something hitting us hard really soon these days. I hope I am wrong.

I believe that this is the show that has the mud core data, very new information.

http://watch.discove...e-we-there-yet/

If your new to this thread and haven't seen this program on discovery channel, you should watch it here. It's the latest earthquake data mainly from the Canadian & US Geological Survey Scientists and the data is mind blowing.

OK, so that was for last year, ending in September, so this year we could start anytime between now and the end of November, which makes those quakes up the coast last night a little more interesting, as the timing is just about right.

They've been saying that ever since the San Fransisco quake of '89. And I'm sure long before that one as well. It could happen, it may never happen in our lifetimes.

Very, very high chance that it will happen in the next 200 years. I'm super dramatic so I buy into this whole 4 corners earthquake thinger. It's coming!! Posted Image Posted Image

parts of the lower mainland should be included in that too. some of those old buildings will fold faster than the atlanta thrashers. downtown van is going to be hellish.

If you would watch the program I posted the link to you would know this is no longer the case. They now have mud core data going back thousands of years that show the same pattern over and over again, with 4-5 monster quakes every several hundred years. These quakes come in groupings and we are right in the midst of the latest grouping, the boxing day tsunami quake was #1, chile was #2 and Japan was #3, at least one more to come, and the last is always the biggest, up the 3x bigger than the rest. The next quake WILL happen within the next few years, 5 years at the outside, but likely sooner and could happen anytime now. They also now know that the cascadia fault and the san andreas fault are part of the same giant fault and expect it will be the next to go, could be 9.0 to 9.4 earthquake from right off Vancouver Island straight down to san fransico and LA. There is no maybe about it.
