Full-Rip 9.0: The Next Big Earthquake In The Pacific Northwest

Scientists have identified Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver as the urban centers of what will be the biggest earthquake—the Really Big One—in the continental United States. A quake will happen--in fact it's actually overdue. The Cascadia subduction zone is 750 miles long, running along the Pacific coast from Northern California up to southern British Columbia. In this fascinating book, The Seattle Times science reporter Sandi Doughton introduces readers to the scientists who are dedicated to understanding the way the earth moves and describes what patterns can be identified and how prepared (or not) people are. With a 100% chance of a mega-quake hitting the Pacific Northwest, this fascinating book reports on the scientists who are trying to understand when, where, and just how big THE BIG ONE will be.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Sandi Doughton is like the Paul Revere of the NW warning us about a very real and present danger. In Full Rip 9.0 we are being given data that allows us to make informed decisions. This book is a must-read for every household in the NW.Although I have science degrees coming out of my ears, I am usually bored silly reading non-fiction. Sandi Doughton's book is very well written, easily readable, and scientifically sound. I can't put it down.I've followed earthquake activity for the last decade and am on the USGS site daily. We've been privileged to have the ears of emergency management professionals that started talking about this subject back in '95. Still, I always believed I knew and understood just enough to be dangerous. Because of Full Rip 9.0, I feel like a person who is legally blind that has been given a pair of glasses that allows them to see clearly. I get it!Back in '95, we asked the professionals we talked with why the information they were telling us wasn't public knowledge. Among other reasons, they said that they didn't want the public to panic but that when we begin to hear about it spoken openly in the media, we'll know that the officials are beginning to sweat. This week, the news said, "This isn't and "if" it's a "when"." Still, people are not listening and have lulled themselves into a false sense of security.The Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission wrote a long report that was recently reported upon in our news. The bottom line was, "Oregonians as individuals are underprepared." Even with our limited knowledge, for the last seven years, we have worked diligently to get our church and friends to have 72 hour packs for their cars (ours are 2 week'ers), and at least a two month supply of food and water at home.
