Eathquake musings

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

On this 316th anniversary of the 1700 Cascadia earthquake, How are we doing locally? While lots of good things are underway to prepare, we also need to avoid potholes and bad decisions as well..


Remember that show?  Often the adult challengers lost answering simple questions on history, math and other basic topics.  In a real “reality show” the kids in Seaside are beating the pants off the adults again.  The are starting a “Go Fund Me” campaign to move their schools out of the tsunami zone.    Check it out and help them out here:

Don’t Catch This Wave

How are the adults doing?  Well the people of Seaside rejected a bond measure to move the schools, Gold Beach is putting a hospital in the tsunami zone, and OSU and OMSI are putting schools in the tsunami zone.  Really, I’m not making this up.  Embarrassing.

Kids: 1  Adults: -4

  1. So much activity now in Japan and Ecuador and other places and yet the Cascadia fault hasn’t moved. Doesn’t all this other movement affect our west coast? And would this indicate the pressure is mounting for sizable quake off the Oregon coast?

    • Generally, most people thing these events are too small and too distant to have any direct effects in Cascadia. But, at the same time, such long distance effects are at the cutting edge or research now, so we may learn some new things in coming years…
