Well Victoria will be safe from a tsunami coming from there. Worst case scenario could be flooding in low lying areas. Unless I have miscalculated. In that case it's been nice knowing you all and Go Canucks Go.


If anyone is up for some lite reading this is a fascinating article on what's coming one day.


The Really Big One

An earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest. The question is when.

The big one will hit when we're winning a gm7 finals, by a large margin.


Worried about some of these BC, Alaska inlets. Topography leads to funneling some nasty-high tsunamis.


GL to everyone back home!
